Kiewit is one of the largest transportation contractors in North America. We construct or upgrade interstate, highways and bridges as well as rail lines and rail yards, urban mass transit systems, and airport runways, taxiways and associated facilities. Our capabilities are reinforced by the largest privately-owned fleet of construction equipment in North America, which allows us to rapidly mobilize the necessary resources for any size of project. Engineering News-Record consistently ranks us among the top transportation contractors in the United States.
Over the last 10 years, Kiewit has constructed more than 1,100 transportation projects totaling more than $30 billion in contract revenue. These projects were delivered using traditional bid-build, design-build and A+B (a combination of price and schedule) procurements.
The Union Station Transit Improvement Project is transforming Denver’s historic Union Station into a regional multi-modal transportation hub. The 19.5 acre, $368 million project is located in downtown Denver and includes an underground bus terminal (23 FT below grade) containing 22 bus slips, 40,000 square-foot underground passenger concourse, eight-track commuter rail station and the relocation of the existing light rail station.
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.
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.
After Sept. 11, the Department of Homeland Security closed the Folsom Dam Road. Kiewit Pacific Co. is constructing a new roadway to bypass Folsom Dam Road and accommodate the 26,000 cars that will use the bridge per day.
This $40 million design-build project included upgrades to 7 km. of the Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99) from two to four lanes. Work was performed under existing highway traffic conditions, with minimal traffic closures and rerouting.
The $615 million Tacoma Narrows Bridge is the first long-span suspension bridge to be constructed in the United States since 1964. Completed in July 2007, the new 5,413-ft.-long bridge will include a high occupancy vehicle traffic lane, a separated bicycle/pedestrian walkway, an 8,000-sq.-ft. toll plaza building, and configurations for a future secondary roadway or transit deck.
