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.
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.
The $21 million Maui Marketplace project involved the masonry construction of a 300,000-square-foot retail space on a 20-acre site. Five major retail tenants and a branch bank, added to the contract during construction, occupy the space. The scope of work included placing 2,200 concrete masonry unit blocks a day, totaling more than 200,000. The team's 30 crew members placed the blocks using 600 linear feet of E-Z Scaffold.
