Granite has been awarded the Child Project 4 (CP4) portion of the Cosumnes Bridge Replacement Project by the California Department of Transportation’s (Caltrans) in Sacramento County.
The contact is part of a phased delivery of the overall $158 million project. The $16 million project contract is included in Granite’s second quarter 2020 backlog, the company says.
The project includes the removal and replacement of four bridges over the Cosumnes river as well as replacing two existing railroad overhead and underpass bridges with a single new overhead bridge, requiring partial realignment of State Route (SR) 99 southbound.
CP4 is a segment of the overall parent project which has been subdivided into seven contracts to allow construction to proceed while design is being completed on other improvements.
Granite says the segmentation has accelerated delivery, which is one year ahead of schedule to the timeline anticipated by the owner.
In December 2019, Granite has completed the early work portion of the project. This included the construction of two approaches to the new overhead railroad bridge, foundations and approach fills for two temporary alignment bridge widenings, and procurement of the precast girders for the railroad bridge.
Granite senior project manager George Delano, says: “The Granite team has worked alongside the Caltrans design and field teams for the last 18 months to develop the most cost-effective and best plans to deliver these critical improvements safely and ahead of schedule.”
Construction is expected to conclude in October 2022.
Granite describes itself as: A large and diversified US construction and construction materials company as well as a full-suite provider in the transportation, water infrastructure and mineral exploration markets.
