A Kiewit-led joint venture completed this project in 42 months. Crews scheduled around three maintenance-of-traffic phases to complete renovations and repairs on the approximately 1-mile long, two-level, 10-lane bridge that spans the East River and connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Queens.
Needed for safety and traffic improvements, this $17.7 million rail grade separation project involved excavating a massive 6,000-foot-long by 28-foot-deep trench in Solana Beach, Calif. The two-year project included construction of retaining walls, utility relocation, track installation, and erection of new platforms and bridge structures.
Metro Gold Line chose a design-build delivery process and selected a Kiewit-led joint venture to construct this light rail extension. Completed in July 2003, the project runs along an existing rail right-of-way from Los Angeles to Claremont and extends 13.7 miles from Union Station in downtown Los Angeles to serve the communities of Los Angeles, Chinatown, Lincoln Heights, Highland Park, South Pasadena and Pasadena.
This $3.7 million project provided emergency repair to the eastbound and westbound Interstate 20 bridges in just 56 days. Vast resources, proper staffing and equipment allowed Kiewit to repair the bridges 10 days ahead of schedule and restore traffic to this major trucking route.
The Second Avenue Bascule Bridge in downtown Miami is the third largest drawbridge in the U.S. and the fourth largest in the world. The project was constructed to alleviate traffic and expand the channel for ships. The $47 million, two-year project involved replacing both halves of the twin, 3,000-ton, 300-foot-span bascule bridge.
The project team widened and reconstructed approximately 4.5 miles of the existing IH-30 from east of Loop 12 to Sylvan Avenue to four new lanes each direction. This $98 million project also involves reconstructing 11 bridges and constructing four types of retaining walls.
Kiewit completely reconstructed three miles of Lejuene Road and Northwest 21st Street. The $81 million project included the construction of 11 bridges and associated ramps to prevent airport traffic from using Lejuene Road and also gives traffic direct access to SR-836 and SR-112.
