Granite Construction Inc. has been awarded a $128 million Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) contract from the California Department of Transportation for the California State Route 99 realignment project in Fresno.
The Watsonville-based company, one of the nation’s largest infrastructure contractors and construction materials producers, announced the contract award today.
The scope of work on the Highway 99 realignment project includes construction of a reconfigured interchange, overhead structures and infrastructure to accommodate the high-speed rail system between the existing freeway and the Union Pacific Railroad.
The project also includes re-routing of local streets to accommodate the realigned freeway and relocation of utilities to support the project.
This project follows an initial $28 million early work scope contract that began construction in December 2015.
Funding for the project is provided by the California High Speed Rail Authority. Work is scheduled to be complete by September 2018.
