Kiewit, one of the largest transportation contractors in North America, constructs and upgrades interstate; highways and bridges; rail lines and rail yards; urban mass transit systems; and airport runways, taxiways and associated facilities. Kiewit’s capabilities are reinforced by one of the largest privately-owned fleets of construction equipment in North America, which enables the company to rapidly mobilize the necessary resources for any project. Engineering News-Record (ENR) consistently ranks Kiewit among the top transportation contractors in the United States. In 2015, Kiewit was ranked the No. 2 contractor in transportation, as well as No. 2 in bridges and mass rail, and No. 3 in highways. During the past 10 years, Kiewit constructed 1,000 transportation projects totaling nearly $30 billion in contract revenue. About 70 percent of these projects were delivered using negotiated procurement methods, including best value and A+B bids.
To accommodate the increasing number of passengers, Kiewit reconstructed Taxiway S, located between Terminals 3 and 4. The new taxiway was open for aircraft in December 2005 upon completion of an aggressive eight-month schedule. Through close cooperation with airport authorities, construction was completed with minimal disruptions to the public and airlines.
