Hailed as a “godsend” by The Wall Street Journal, 91 Express Lanes, the world's first fully automated toll road, is the result of a unique public-private partnership to improve California's transportation infrastructure. Completed in December 1995, the $126 million privately financed toll road project offers motorists four free-flowing lanes along the median of the Riverside (91) Freeway.

The Second Avenue Bascule Bridge in downtown Miami is the third largest drawbridge in the U.S. and the fourth largest in the world. The project was constructed to alleviate traffic and expand the channel for ships. The $47 million, two-year project involved replacing both halves of the twin, 3,000-ton, 300-foot-span bascule bridge.
Kiewit Energy Canada fabricated and set 43 modules, built the central processing facility, constructed well pads, and laid pipelines for Phase 1 this 3,000 bpd facility. Phase 2 was a Kiewit-led EPC project, included adding 22,000 barrel-per-day capacity to Phase 1. By self-performing critical path elements, including the fabrication and setting of 118 modules, Kiewit was able to keep the project on time and on budget.
The project consisted of a 15,000 square-foot Tenant Improvement at the Village Pointe Medical Center. The Ambulatory Surgery Center houses four new operating rooms and two procedure rooms serving patients in the areas of pain management, plastics, ear, nose & throat, allergy, gastrointestinal and general surgery.

As part of the project, 55 bridges were built including eight new precast segmental fly-over bridges, 33 new concrete girder bridges and four structural steel girder bridges. Ten bridges were rehabilitated.
Kiewit has been working on The Nebraska Medical Center campus for over 60 years building new facilities and renovating existing buildings. The NMC campus contains more than 5 million square feet of space including hospital facilities, specialty medical facilities and academic facilities for nursing and medical students.
