In 1997, a Kiewit-led joint venture began work on UDOT's Interstate 15 reconstruction, a $1.3-billion design-build project. Demolishing, designing and rebuilding a 16-mile stretch of freeway with 142 bridges, the team completed the job months ahead of schedule and in time for the 2002 Winter Olympics.
The 8-mile 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.
TIC, a subsidiary of Kiewit, was awarded the contract to build the O’Connor Gas Plant. The plant was designed for an initial capacity of 110 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd). Before completion, TIC was awarded a second contract to construct the expansion to 160 MMcfd.
For more than three decades, Kiewit has been constructing projects for the Vancouver Skytrain light rail system. Most recently, crews constructed several portions of guideway and elevated guidway on the Lougheed, Front Street and Grandview segments.
