Granite Awarded $18 Million Road Reconstruction Project in Salt Lake City

July 13, 2021 GMT

WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 13, 2021--

Granite (NYSE:GVA) has been awarded the $18 million contract for the 300 West Reconstruction project by Salt Lake City in Utah. The contract award is anticipated to be included in Granite’s second quarter committed and awarded projects (CAP).

The scope of work consists of the full reconstruction of 300 West from 900 South to 2100 South. The project design features a number of innovative highlights, like a fully protected two-way bike lane and the incorporation of greenery-filled “parkstrips” to aid in stormwater management, as well as providing a buffer from traffic for pedestrians. Additional work includes cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) sewer lining, flat concrete work, traffic signal systems, and asphalt paving.

“We are excited to work with Salt Lake City on the 300 West project to improve mobility and safety for vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic,” said Granite Vice President Jason Klaumann. “Our local facilities will also be providing the materials for this multi-season project.”

Construction is underway and expected to be completed in the fall of 2022.
