Kiewit Southern Co. completely reconstructed three miles of Lejuene Road and Northwest 21st Street. The $81 million project included the construction of 11 bridges and associated ramps to prevent airport traffic from using Lejuene road and give traffic direct access to SR-836 and SR-112.
Working on an accelerated schedule that also minimized disruption to the park entrance, the Kiewit-led design-build team designed and constructed repairs and improvements to this flood-damaged roadway. Work included major drainage improvements, rehabilitation and reconstruction of the damaged sanitary sewer, asphalt concrete pavement replacement, and guidewall design and construction.
Considered one of the largest design-build highway projects in Colorado history, the $191 million Northwest Parkway Toll Road opened to traffic on November 24, 2003, five weeks ahead of schedule. The project encompasses more than 9 mi. of new roadway alignment, and includes 26 bridges and three toll plazas.
This C$53 million design-build project includes construction of a 16 km. four-lane divided highway and 11 bridges. Extremely challenging soil conditions required crews to undergo extensive pre-loading and monitoring in order to have the new highway open for two-lane traffic in September 2006.
The vivaNext - H3 Project is part of York Region Rapid Transit Corporation's plan for the next generation of rapid transit. The project includes the construction of rapidways - dedicated centre bus lanes and 22 state-of-the-art station platforms. The 6.4 kilometre project will transform the Highway 7 corridor into a visually appealing and pedestrian-friendly environment.
Kiewit Pacific Co. was awarded an $18.5 million project to improve the San Gabriel Subdivision of the Metrolink track. Crews A Kiewit-led joint venture was selected to construct this new 19-mi., six-lane toll road. The work included 80 bridges, 725,000 sq. ft. of retaining wall, 32 million cu. yd. of excavation and 11 interchanges. Despite an 18-month environmental delay, the design-build project team opened the road to traffic ahead of schedule.three bridges, constructed a new station, lengthened two other stations, added a second platform on a fourth station and extended two box culverts.
In 1997, Wasatch Constructors, a Kiewit-led joint venture, began work on UDOT's I-15 Reconstruction, a $1.3-billion design-build project. Demolishing, designing and rebuilding a 16-mi. stretch of freeway with 142 bridges, the team completed the job months ahead of schedule and in time for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The Texas Department of Transportation awarded the DFW Connector contract to NorthGate Constructors, a Kiewit-led joint venture. The $1.02 billion project scope includes the development, design and construction of the 8.4-mile initial phase of the ultimate 14.4-mile project. The project will reduce congestion at the confluence of two of the area's most heavily traveled highways, and ease access into DFW International Airport. Ultimately doubling the capacity of the existing highway corridor, the DFW Connector will rebuild portions of four highways, two interchanges, and five bridges.
This finance-design-build-operate project is one of the first public-private partnerships to reach financial close within the North American transportation market. Work involves upgrades to over 130 km. of the highway between Vancouver and Whistler, British Columbia, for safety and mobility improvements.
The 8-mi. I-15 FasTrak™ program, located between Kearny Mesa and Rancho Penasquitos, allows single occupancy vehicles to pay a fee to use the high occupancy vehicle lanes. Since the program's inception, the average daily traffic on the carpool lanes has increased from 9,400 to 20,000 vehicles per day.
