Granite announced recently that it has been awarded the Child Project 4 (CP4) portion of the Construction Manager/ General Contractor (CM/GC) contract of the Cosumnes Bridge Replacement Project by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) in Sacramento County, California. This CM/GC contract is part of a phased delivery of the overall $158 million project. The $16 million project contract is included in Granite's second quarter 2020 backlog.
"It has been our honor to be the CM/GC for five of the seven projects, and a testament to the experience and quality of our team."
The Cosumnes Bridge Replacement Project is located on State Route (SR) 99, in Elk Grove, Calif. 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 app-roaches 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.
"The Granite team has worked alongside the Caltrans design and field teams for the last 18 months to develop the most cost-effective and best plans to deliver these critical improvements safely and ahead of schedule," said Granite Senior Project Manager George Delano. "It has been our honor to be the CM/GC for five of the seven projects, and a testament to the experience and quality of our team."
Construction materials for the project will be supplied by Granite's Bradshaw Facility.
Construction began in June 2020 and will conclude in October 2022.
