Granite says it has been awarded the Child Project 4 (CP4) portion of the construction contract of the Cosumnes Bridge Replacement Project by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in Sacramento County.
The bridge construction contract is part of a phased delivery of the overall $158 million project.
Granite’s contract is valued at $16 million.
The Cosumnes Bridge Replacement Project is located on State Route (SR) 99, in Elk Grove. Project scope includes the removal and replacement of four bridges over the Cosumnes River as well as replacing two existing railroad overhead and underpass bridges with a single new overhead bridge, requiring partial realignment of SR 99 southbound.
Granite completed the early work portion of this project in December 2019 which included the construction of two approaches to the new overhead railroad bridge, foundations and approach fills for two temporary alignment bridge widenings, and procurement of the precast girders for the railroad bridge.
CP4 is a segment of the overall parent project which has been subdivided into seven contracts to allow construction to proceed while design is being completed on other improvements. The segmentation of the project allows for an accelerated delivery, which is one year ahead of schedule to the timeline anticipated by the owner.
Granite is expected to begin construction in June 2020 and finish in October 2022.
