Skanska to serve as contractor of road grade separation project in California


Skanska has secured a contract from the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments to act as the contractor for the Fullerton Road Grade Separation Project in City of Industry, Southern California, the US.

The contract is valued at $96m and will be included in the US order bookings for Q3 2021.

This project will lower Fullerton Road under the current Union Pacific railroad tracks between Rowland Street and State Route 60.

Skanska will be responsible for construction of a six-lane roadway underpass, four-track railroad bridge and a bridge for Railroad Street spanning Fullerton Road.
Construction is scheduled to commence in Q3 2021 with completion expected in Q4 2024.

In July, Skanska secured a contract worth $161m from the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) to rehabilitate sections of the Pulaski Skyway in New Jersey, the US.

The scope of work under the contract involves rehabilitation of sections of the Pulaski Skyway carrying Routes 1 and 9 in Jersey City, New Jersey.

Structural rehabilitation, bearings replacement, pier reconstruction as well as painting of thirteen spans of the Skyway steel truss and superstructure are also included in the contract.

Construction work on the project is planned to be completed in December 2026.

The construction company also secured a contract worth $248m in July to make improvements to an existing corporate campus in Long Island, New York.

Construction work on the project is expected to be completed in February 2026.

The company had then noted that both the contracts would be included in the US order bookings for the second quarter of this year.
