Kiewit, one of the largest transportation contractors in North America, constructs and upgrades interstate; highways and bridges; rail lines and rail yards; urban mass transit systems; and airport runways, taxiways and associated facilities. Kiewit’s capabilities are reinforced by one of the largest privately-owned fleets of construction equipment in North America, which enables the company to rapidly mobilize the necessary resources for any project. Engineering News-Record (ENR) consistently ranks Kiewit among the top transportation contractors in the United States. In 2015, Kiewit was ranked the No. 2 contractor in transportation, as well as No. 2 in bridges and mass rail, and No. 3 in highways. During the past 10 years, Kiewit constructed 1,000 transportation projects totaling nearly $30 billion in contract revenue. About 70 percent of these projects were delivered using negotiated procurement methods, including best value and A+B bids.
The I-225 Rail Line is a $350 million project to design and build 10.5 miles of light rail line in Denver and Aurora, Colorado. The line will connect RTD’s Nine Mile Station, built by Kiewit as part of the T-REX project, with the planned Peoria/Smith Station.
The Union Station Transit Improvement Project is transforming Denver's historic Union Station into a regional multi-modal transportation hub. The 19.5 acre, $374 million project is located in downtown Denver and includes an underground bus terminal (23 FT below grade) containing 22 bus slips; 40,000-square-foot underground passenger concourse; eight-track commuter rail station; and the relocation of the existing light rail station.
The vivaNext - H3 Project is part of York Region Rapid Transit Corporation's plan for the next generation of rapid transit. The project includes the construction of rapidways — dedicated centre bus lanes — and 22 state-of-the-art station platforms. The 6.4-kilometre project will transform the Highway 7 corridor into a visually appealing and pedestrian-friendly environment.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Kiewit an $20 million project to remove and rebuild the existing east and west breakwaters as well as dredge the navigational channel of Kikiaola Light Draft Harbor on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. A mining excavator with state-of-the art GPS technology is used to set stone for breakwater and excavate the existing jetty.
The passenger tunnel at Dulles International Airport allows travelers to move more efficiently through the fast-growing airport. Kiewit excavated the tunnel under a live taxiway using New Austrian Tunneling Method. The completed tunnel is lined with PVC waterproofing and reinforced cast-in-place concrete and is equipped with escalators and moving walkways.
Constructed for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, these aircraft weather shelters feature drive-through aircraft bays with mechanical/electrical support, tool storage, and administration areas. The 63-foot by 70-foot bays are separated by concrete “blast walls” containing all equipment needed for missile loading, fueling, and normal maintenance operations.
The $56 million Puget Sound Carrier Support Complex project included construction of a 1,680-foot-long by 126-foot-wide carrier pier and a 470-foot-long by 144-foot-wide marginal wharf for escort vessels. Ship service utilities included steam, potable water, sanitary sewer, and shore power electrical service and communications lines.
This $22 million emergency repair contract provided structural stability to Graving Dock #3 after a sheetpile cell catastrophically erupted. Kiewit successfully dewatered the dock and strengthened the cell. The team's impressive performance led to a follow-on contract to provide permanent repairs to the dock.
