ConDig (08-Jul-20) Civil contractor and construction materials producer Granite Construction has bagged a $63 million bridge replacement contract in Elk Grove, California.
Under the deal with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), the contractor will oversee the removal and replacement of two existing bridges over the Cosumnes River and overflow sections.
The Child Project 6 (CP6), Granite’s sixth awarded contract for this project, is a portion of the overall scheme that has been subdivided into seven contracts to allow construction to proceed while design is being completed on other improvements, according to Granite.
Construction materials for the project will be supplied by Granite’s Bradshaw Facility.
Work is scheduled to kick off in July this year and set for completion in October 2022.
“The Granite team continues to work alongside the Caltrans design and field teams with the shared focus on achieving the project goals,” said Granite regional vice president Carter Rohrbough. “We look forward to our continued collaboration with Caltrans on the successful and safe completion of this critical infrastructure.”
In May, Granite was one of five contractors selected by the US Air Force to share in a $350 million deal to upgrade airfields at five military bases in Alaska.
