Commissioned in 2008 and constructed by a Kiewit-led partnership, this liquefied natural gas terminal was the first constructed in Canada. The jetty spans 300 metres offshore and is equipped to receive liquefied natural gas from the largest tankers in the world.
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.
Kiewit completed the Benicia-Martinez Bridge in August 2007. The five-lane, 8,790-foot-long toll bridge carries northbound vehicles across the Carquinez Strait and connects the City of Benicia in Solano County and the City of Martinez in Contra Costa County. The bridge consists of 130 piles, 1,700-ton footings, 17 piers, 11 pier tables and 335 cast-in-place segments.
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 Central Artery/Tunnel has the capacity to carry 250,000 daily vehicles. To ensure the safety of motorists, crews installed a system-wide security system that includes perimeter video surveillance, an access control system, an instruction detection system, a security operator console, motion detection and telephone communication.
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.
