Granite to construct sewer infrastructure for Salinas, Calif. traffic flow project

(UI) – Granite has been awarded an approximately $16 million contract by the City of Salinas to improve traffic flow on a key thoroughfare between residential areas and Highway 101.

The project includes construction of bioretention facilities, buffered bike lanes, bus pullouts, sidewalks, ADA-compliant access ramps, storm drain lines, sanitary sewer lines, street lighting, landscaping, and other improvements. Project funding comes from the City of Salinas and will be included in Granite’s second-quarter CAP.

This project will enhance safety for pedestrians and bicyclists commuting to and from the adjacent elementary school. Granite will widen East Boronda Road into a four-lane roadway (two lanes in each direction) and construct a multi-lane roundabout at the McKinnon Street intersection.

“Located near Granite’s Salinas Recycled Aggregate and Hot Plant facility, the Boronda Road project aligns perfectly with our home market strategy,” said Brian Dowd, Granite Senior Vice President of Construction Operations. “This project presents an ideal opportunity for us to respond to a long-standing community request and further develop our local market.”

The project is expected to begin in Q3 2024 and be completed in the Fall of 2025.

Incorporated since 1922, Granite is one of the largest diversified construction and construction materials companies in the United States as well as a full-suite civil construction provider.
