Granite’s joint venture team has been awarded a $275 million contract by the California Department of Transportation for the SAC 5 Corridor Enhancement Project in Sacramento, California.
Granite says the project will rehabilitate 67 lane miles of Interstate 5 beginning south of the Elk Grove Boulevard Overcrossing and extending to the American River Viaduct.
The scope of the work includes adding 23 miles of high occupancy vehicle lanes, eight maintenance vehicle pullouts, two sound walls, replacement of a pedestrian overcrossing and installation of fibre optic lines. In addition, the team intends to recycle existing concrete pavement and other materials onsite to reduce waste and cost as well as minimize truck haul trips.
Construction is scheduled to begin in fall 2019 and finish in 2021.
