US$174 million contract awarded for Los Angeles airports

The City of Los Angeles and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) have given Granite a contract for about $174 million to build new exit taxiways and rehabilitate a portion of an existing runway.

It is anticipated that the project will be covered by Granite’s fourth quarter CAP. Further, it will be supported by the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) of LAWA and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The project involves building four new exit taxiways beside the already-existing Runway 6L-24R. Additionally, it involves resurfacing the Runway 6L-24R with hot mix asphalt (HMA).

Lastly, the Runway 6R-24L keel section with Portland cement concrete pavement will be rebuilt.

Development plans

Two significant runways must be closed off consecutively as part of the project. This necessitates working double 10-hour shifts six and occasionally seven days a week for nearly a year straight.

The subsequent work will increase airfield safety and operational effectiveness. This will also extend the pavement life of both runways on LAX’s north complex. For the project, Granite will self-produce (batch) about 85,000 cubic yards of FAA Concrete and recycle about 85,000 tons of materials on-site.

The project is scheduled to start in January 2023 and end in April 2025.

Los Angeles airports contract to strengthen Granite footprint in the country

“With this project, Granite is able to strengthen the relationship we have with LAWA, which has been growing since 2016.

According to Granite VP of Regional Operations Scott McArthur, “We appreciate being trusted with a project that will boost safety and efficiency at one of the busiest airports in the world.
