Infrastructure and Energy Alternatives, Inc. says it has been awarded a $17 million construction award from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). The contract was secured by IEA subsidiary American Civil Constructors (ACC).
This heavy-civil contract consists of the rehabilitation of the Sacramento River Bridge, which crosses the border of Yolo and Sacramento counties.
ACC says it will self-perform the majority of the project, including the demolition and construction of a new barrier on both sides of the bridge, replacement of portions of the bridge’s overlay with polyester concrete, and construction of the bridge’s joints, seals and drainage systems. Work on the project is expected to begin this November with an anticipated completion date in September 2021.
For more than two decades, Sacramento and West Sacramento have researched ways to reduce the concentrated traffic flow on their cities’ roads and bridges, while also continuing to promote economic activity and access to jobs. The Sacramento River Bridge is intended to improve mobility in the region.
“IEA is very pleased to support Caltrans in their efforts to bring improved transportation infrastructure to Sacramento,” IEA executive vice-president Brian Hummer said in a statement. “ACC has constructed some of our nation’s most advanced bridges, and the Sacramento River Bridge improvement is no different. We look forward to lending our construction expertise to this innovative transportation project.”
