ConDig (30-Sept-19). Civil contractor and construction materials producer Granite Construction Inc has bagged a $20 million deal to revamp the runway at Grant County International Airport in Moses Lake, Washington.
Under the deal with the Port of Moses Lake, the Watsonville, California-based contractor will reconstruct 3,900 feet of runway and remove existing asphalt and concrete pavements. It will also replace and upgrade taxiway signs and lights, pavement markings and joint sealing.
Construction on the project is set to start in the fall and is slated to be completed by the summer of next year.
“Our team looks forward to working with the Port of Moses Lake to rehabilitate and improve safety at one of the largest airfields in the United States,” said David Richards, Granite senior vice president.
“This project provides us the opportunity to utilize our asphalt and aggregate facility which is adjacent to the airport as well as our local fleet of equipment and highly experienced and capable crew.”
In June, Granite secured a $39 million contract to revamp the Lewisville Dam in Lewisville, Texas.
In February, a joint venture led by Granite Construction Inc secured a $21 million contract to revamp aging sewer infrastructure in Atlanta, Georgia.
Granite said it had bagged a $22 million deal to revamp Highway 1 in Santa Cruz, California, also in February.
In December, Granite secured a $50 million highway revamp contract in Silver Springs, Nevada.
