Granite drives off with $27M highway upgrade contract in Alaska

ConDig (27-Apr-18). Civil contractor and construction materials producer Granite Construction Inc has netted a $27 million contract to revamp the Sterling Highway in Alaska.

Under the deal with the Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities, the California-based company will widening the shoulders and instal four large diameter fish passage multi-plate culverts between Soldotna and Clam Gulch. A bridge will replace the existing culverts and the creek will be regraded under the bridge to restore the natural channel.

The project will also feature pavement removal, excavation, embankment, grading, paving, stream diversions, stream channel restoration, stream bank construction, culvert installation, signing and striping.

Construction is slated to start this spring and scheduled to finish in the fall next year.

Last month, Granite secured a $51 million pavement and bridge rehabilitation contract in Girdwood, Alaska.

The company is set to revamp about 15 miles of the Seward Highway between MP 75 near the bottom of Turnagain Pass and MP 90 near the Girdwood intersection.
