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.
The $16.3 million Carlisle project involved reconstructing 6.4 miles of I-40 from Lonoke to Carlisle, Ark. The work was completed 70 days ahead of schedule and included nearly 260,000 tons of asphalt, 180,000 square yards of rubblizing concrete and 76,000 feet of edge drain.
The Florida Department of Transportation awarded this $75 million project to alleviate up to 40 percent of traffic on Interstate 4 through the Disney corridor. Kiewit constructed the toll State Road - 429 Western Beltway, as well as the associated ramps and state-of-the-art signature walls near the gantry.
Beartooth Highway serves as a vital link to the western route of Yellowstone Park. A rain-on-snow event in mid-March 2005 caused the road to be heavily damaged. Under a $15.2 million design-build contract, Kiewit completed reconstruction of 12 miles of the highway in just 16 weeks.
This $550 million, 7-mile highway project included the challenges of balancing an aggressive job schedule with exceeding the tough erosion and sediment control standards of Maryland throughout several stream valleys and a 2-mile-long environmental special protection area.
The I-95 project involved widening 10 miles of Interstate 95 four-lane interstate highway to six-lanes in Brevard County, Fla. Kiewit's solution provided cost and schedule benefits by widening the road inside and closing up the median with a concrete barrier wall, which increased safety and reduced maintenance costs while mitigating the impact on the wetlands.
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.
