Kiewit partnered with Parsons to design and build the extension of A-25, Québec's first public-private partnership (PPP) project in the transportation market. The extension was built to improve public transportation between Montreal and the North Shore as well as provide an alternate route for freight transportation.
In less than 18 months, a Kiewit-led joint venture completed Phase I of the Greater Toronto Area's first bus rapid transit system.

The Merle Catherine Chambers Center for the Advancement of Women is a 32,000-square-foot, three-story building, viewed as a signature on the University of Denver campus.

With Albuquerque's population growing, the I-40/Coors Interchange could no longer accommodate the daily traffic volume. The design-build project to rebuild the heavily traveled roadway included the interchange reconstruction, eight new bridges, pedestrian and bicycle paths, retaining walls, utility relocations, drainage improvements, signage and lighting.
While working in a narrow corridor in downtown Dallas next to pedestrian and vehicular traffic, Kiewit finished this $58.6 million, 7,000-foot light rail project through downtown Dallas in November 1996. The project involved utility relocation; street and sidewalk reconstruction; installation of light-rail track; and construction of passenger stations.
