Granite Construction says that that it has been selected by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) as the construction manager/general contractor for the approximately $90 million State Route 70 Binney Junction Roadway Rehabilitation and Complete Streets project.
In the first phase of this project, valued at $1.3 million, Granite will work closely with Caltrans and project designers on the design, constructability, and cost estimating portions of the project, the company says in a Jan. 5 statement.
“This is Granite’s third CM/GC project with Caltrans District 3 since 2018, and further enhances Granite’s portfolio of CM/GC, railroad, and levee work in the California Valley Region,” Colin Crawford, chief estimator for the Sacramento Area, said in the statement.
The scope of work includes relocating utilities, reconstructing existing drainage systems, roadway widening and profile changes, replacing existing railroad structures at the Binney Junction Underpass and Marysville Underpass, realigning a portion of the Valley Subdivision and Sacramento Subdivision track alignments, and relocating an existing finger levee.
The construction management portion of the Binney Junction project is expected to begin in Q1, 2022 and the general contractor phase is expected to begin in Q1, 2023.
