Granite Construction awarded rehabilitation project near Stratford


California Construction News staff writer

Granite has been awarded a $15 million contract by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to rehabilitate pavement along State Route 41 near Stratford. Project funding comes from Caltrans and will be included in Granite’s second-quarter CAP.

The rehabilitation will involve removing and replacing failed pavement areas with 49,400 tons of hot mix asphalt (HMA) and placing a surface course of 19,100 tons of Rubberized Hot Mix Asphalt (RHMA) which will be supplied by Granite’s Coalinga plant in Fresno County.

In addition to the pavement rehabilitation, culverts along the route will be lengthened and rehabilitated, guard railing and barriers will be upgraded, and failing bridge approaches pavement will be replaced with concrete approaches slabs.

“Our team is proud to take on the challenge of enhancing SR41, a vital connector between the Central Valley and the Central Coast,” said Carter Rohrbough, Granite vice president of regional operations. “With numerous pavement failures impacting this heavily traveled two-lane highway, we’re committed to delivering smoother roads and reducing maintenance burdens for Caltrans crews. Our expertise and dedication will ensure a safer and more efficient journey for all travelers.”

The project is expected to begin in July 2024 and be completed in July of 2025.

Granite has two other projects under construction along SR41 that join or are in the middle of this new project.
