Crews are well into construction of the second arch of the I-74 Mississippi River Bridge.
Construction of the new bridge began in July 2017. The westbound bridge is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2020 and the eastbound bridge in 2021. The new bridge will be more than twice as wide as the existing bridge, providing four lanes in each direction.
Construction began in June 2018 on the three-year, $39.3 million Baudette-Rainy River International Bridge Replacement project at the U.S.-Canada border, a joint venture of the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Ministry of Transport–Ontario (MTO) headed up by Lunda Construction Co.
A $1.2 billion bridge replacement is currently under way in a cooperative effort between the Iowa and Illinois Departments of Transportation.
The I-74 Mississippi River Bridge project is part of an overall plan to improve the I-74 corridor from Moline, Ill., to Davenport, Iowa.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation's (MnDOT) $239 million, multi-year 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project reached its first year of construction in July as crews from a joint-venture, consisting of Ames Construction, Lunda Contracting Co.
It is hard to imagine a pair of structures more in need of replacement than the two that make up the Iowa-Illinois Memorial Bridge. More commonly known together as the Interstate 74 Bridge, the twin suspension spans transport about 80,000 vehicles across the Mississippi River each day between Bettendorf, Iowa and Moline, Ill.
Tutor Perini Corporation, a civil, building and specialty construction company, announced Aug. 4, that a joint venture team comprised of its subsidiary, Lunda Construction Co., together with Ames Construction and Shafer Contracting Co., is being awarded a contract valued at approximately $239 million by the Minnesota Department of Transportation for the 35W & Lake Street Project.
