ConDig (14-Jul–21) Civil contractor and construction materials producer Granite Construction has driven off with an $18 million contract to reconstruct a roadway in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The deal includes the full revamp of 300 West from 900 South to 2100 South and will involved building a fully protected two-way bike lane, with the incorporation of greenery-filled “parkstrips” to aid in stormwater management.
Additional work includes cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) sewer lining, flat concrete work, traffic signal systems, and asphalt paving, Granite said.
Construction has already started on the project and is slated to be completed in the fall of 2022.
The company noted that materials provided by Granite facilities include 8,200 linear-feet of CIPP from Liner Products, a Granite Inliner company. Granite’s Cottonwood facility will provide 17,000 tons of hot-mix asphalt and the Coyote facility will provide 14,000 tons of aggregate base.
