Granite wins contract to widen State Route 74 Ortega Highway in California

WCN Editorial Team 2 Dec 2020 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

US-based infrastructure company Granite has received a contract to widen the State Route 74 Ortega Highway in Lake Elsinore, from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

The contract, which is worth $39m, is expected to be included in the company’s fourth quarter backlog of this year.

Construction is expected to commence in February next year and is likely to complete in June 2022.

This project will widen State Route 74 from Lake Elsinore to the Riverside County/Orange County line to boost the safety of the busy route between the cities of Lake Elsinore and San Juan Capistrano.

Under the contract terms, Granite’s scope of work includes the construction of widened shoulders and rumble strips in each direction, besides increased super-elevations on the curves for enhanced safety.

Granite regional vice president Brad Williams said: “This section of State Route 74, which connects Interstate 15 and Interstate 5, is narrow and winding, so the addition of shoulders and rumble strips will improve safety for the traveling public.

“This project is an internal joint venture between our Desert Cities and South Coast regions, so each team brings their unique expertise to this partnership with Caltrans.”
