Carolina Crossroads Phase 3

Kiewit is preparing a response to the Request for Proposals issued by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) to provide design-build services for the delivery of Phase 3 of the Carolina Crossroads (I-20/26/126 System Interchanges) Project (CCR Phase 3).

*SCDOT does not support or endorse the Kiewit proposer team*


Carolina Crossroads: I-20/26/126 Corridor Improvement Project

The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) Carolina Crossroads I-20/26/126 Corridor Improvement Project aims to increase mobility and enhance traffic operations by reducing existing traffic congestion, while accommodating future traffic needs. The overall Carolina Crossroads Project will be divided into 5 phases with expected completion in 2029. SCDOT anticipates the construction of 132 new lane miles, 14 widened interstate miles, 43 new bridges, and 7 reconstructed interchanges.

Carolina Crossroads Phase 3 – I-20/26/126 System Interchanges Design-Build Project

Phase 3 consists of the design and reconstruction of new interchanges at I-20 with I-26, I-26 with I-126, St. Andrews Road (S-36) with I-26, and Bush River Road (S-273) with I-20 and associated interstate widening and ramp construction in Richland and Lexington Counties.

Work will include design and construction of interstate widening, interchange ramps, collector-distributor roads, crossing routes, frontage roads, side roads, highway bridges, riverine bridges, railroad bridges, retaining walls, noise barrier wall, and related roadway appurtenances. The Project also includes coordination, design, and relocation of wet and dry utilities.

Kiewit is committed to meeting SCDOT’s goals and objectives for this project, to include (but, not limited to):

  • Improved mobility and enhanced traffic operations through reduced traffic congestion while accommodating future traffic needs
  • Improved travel time and commuter safety within the corridor
  • Improved system linkages (bicycle, pedestrian, and transit mobility)
  • Improved freight mobility within the corridor
  • Reduced or eliminated vehicular weaving segments, lengthening of merge sections, separating system-to-system traffic flows and improving interchange ramp termini geometry
  • Completion of the project on original contract schedule and budget
  • Use of quality construction methods to produce durable structures with enhanced service life
  • Minimized environmental impact, including impacts to Waters of the United States
  • Minimized impact to the traveling public during construction
