The single largest contract in Caltrans history, the “Skyway Segment” replaced over 1.2 miles of the bridge's eastern span. Composed of precast sections, the new span rests atop some of the longest and largest diameter bridge piles ever driven in the Bay Area. The work, performed by a Kiewit-led joint venture, is a key part of a major seismic retrofit program.
Ontario Power Generation (OPG) awarded Kiewit-Alarie, a Partnership (KAP), the design-build contract for the redevelopment of the Wawaitin, Sandy Falls and Lower Sturgeon hydroelectric Generating Stations (GS) on the Upper Mattagami River and the Hound Chute GS on the Montreal River.
The $629 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 5,413-foot-long bridge includes a high occupancy vehicle traffic lane; a separated bicycle/pedestrian walkway; an 8,000-square-foot toll plaza building; and configurations for a future secondary roadway or transit deck.
Creighton University is the only university in the nation with a soccer-only stadium. In August 2002, the $12 million project was initiated and became part of Creighton University's master plan to expand its campus infrastructure. Early involvement and collaboration among the entire project team resulted in cost and schedule savings. The stadium was completed November 2004 - just in time for the Creighton Bluejays to host the Missouri Valley Conference championship tournament.
This $61 million project involved the design and construction of a water transmission system. The success of the shutdown, tie-in, and restart was due to the project team's well planned coordination and communication with the local agencies and community.
Kiewit was awarded the Phase I and Phase II contracts for a new nine-gate commercial aircraft terminal and Arrivals Hall at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. With an emphasis on partnering, crews were able to overcome scheduling and security challenges to complete the project much earlier than expected.
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.
Using an A+B contract, the Oregon Department of Transportation selected Kiewit to reconstruct the intersection of Interstate 5 and Highway 217. This $38 million project relieved traffic congestion as exiting northbound I-5 traffic attempted to merge with the heavily traveled Highway 217, which provided the only freeway access into western Portland. The reconstruction work involved merging northbound I-5 with westbound Highway 217 via a fly-over ramp.
Kiewit received the 2018 Design-Build Institute of America (DBIA) National Award of Excellence in Water/ Wastewater. The project consisted of facility upgrades at the 240 MGD RM Clayton Water Reclamation Center—the City of Atlanta’s largest. The scope of work primarily consisted of the removal of the replacement of the coarse screening, installation of a new grit removal and dewatering systems and new flow-monitoring equipment. The project also included several upgrades and replacements to existing process equipment including the 4 bar screens, washer compactor and screenings conveyor equipment, 26 electric actuated sluice gates, various underground utilities, electrical and control upgrades and new DCS / Foxboro integration.
Kiewit has become a trusted partner with Saint Anthony Central Hospital, one of the largest acute care hospitals in the Denver area. Because of our track record of successfully delivering projects on time and on budget, we have been retained for several projects at the 109-year-old hospital.
