Granite has been awarded a $25 million contract by the California Department of Transportation for the Interstate 8 at Imperial Avenue Interchange Reconstruction Project in El Centro.
Brad Williams, Granite’s regional vice president, says: “Not only will this project provide improved access into the City of El Centro, it allows our teams to make an impact on the community in which our Imperial Valley employees live and work.”
Granite is to carry out a complete removal of the existing bridge and associated on/off ramps. The company will also reconstruct the interchange with a new bridge and ramps that will provide easier access into El Centro from Interstate 8.
Construction on the project is expected to begin in the second quarter of 2020 and is estimated to be complete in the third quarter of 2021.
