Over a 13-year period, Kiewit has constructed $132 million worth of taxiways, runways and terminals at the DFW Airport. In June 1995, Kiewit completed reconstruction of the $2.2 million Taxiway K project. This taxiway, a major eastside artery, involved reworking the subgrade and demolition and removal of 15,000 square yards of 17-inch-thick concrete taxiway.
Kiewit completed this $58 million project to reconstruct a 47-mile-long rail line between San Francisco and San Jose in May 2001. Crews worked 24-hour shifts between Friday evenings and Monday mornings to minimize disruptions to the 68 daily trains.
Home to the Mesa State Mavericks college football team, Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction, Colo. is the most highly used field on the Western Slope, hosting as many as four football games a weekend. Kiewit also constructed new high hump, long jump and triple jump areas with polyurethane track to complete the facility.
The city of Phoenix and Sky Harbor International Airport awarded Kiewit this project. Close coordination with air operations was critical to allow for continuous airline movement at all times. During the 1,030 construction days, project personnel worked more than 220,000 hours without any recordable incidents.
Two large bridge structures and more than 6 kilometres of roadway were built connecting Calgary Trail and Ellerslie Road. Thorough planning by project personnel minimized the impact to the traveling public and allowed for completion of the project in June 2001.
The iStructure Tempe project involved the construction of a 60,000-square-foot building including a 31,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art data center built to withstand the effects of a natural disaster. The facility infrastructure included multiple UPS systems, redundant generators and a backup water supply system.
Kiewit Southern Co. was awarded the $11 million project to design and construct the Pembroke Pump Station. The team constructed an at-grade precast panel pump station, four 40-cubic-feet-per-second pumps with 30-inch-diameter expansion joints, back-flow gates and butterfly valves that are connected to a 64-inch-diameter steel header pipe.
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.
Positioned comfortably in a historic section of South Omaha, the Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center is a $29 million facility which includes a fitness center, a gymnasium and aquatic, education and family services centers. The six-city-block facility employs more than 40 full-time, year-round employees and more than 40 part-time employees.
The Texas Department of Transportation awarded the DFW Connector contract to a Kiewit-led joint venture. The $1.02 billion project scope included the development, design and construction of the 8.4-mile initial phase of the ultimate 14.4-mile project. The project reduces congestion at the confluence of two of the area's most heavily traveled highways and ease access into DFW International Airport. Crews rebuilt portions of four highways, two interchanges and five bridges, ultimately doubling the capacity of the existing highway corridor.
