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.
After successfully completing the emergency repair contract at Graving Dock #3, General Dynamics awarded Kiewit the $38 million long term repair project. Crews developed an innovative concrete mix that allowed quick turnaround of formwork, enabling them to meet the project's demanding schedule.
This $22.5 million, 1,025-foot-long wharf extension at the National City Marine Terminal radically increased the cargo-handling capacity, permitting simultaneous berthing of two 700-foot-long ships capable of carrying as many as 2,000 vehicles each.
Kiewit completed this $8.9 million project to replace a 34-year-old air traffic control tower one month ahead of schedule. At an elevation of approximately 7,000 feet, crews constructed a new control tower, base building, emergency generator building and fuel containment area.
In December 2008, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) selected Kiewit, Stacy & Witbeck, Reyes, Parsons (KSWRP), a joint venture, to design and construct the approximately nine-mile, six station LTR from Bachman Station on the Green Line in northwest Dallas to Belt Line Road, located south of DFW Airport.
