Tutor Perini, a civil, building and specialty construction company, has announced three low bids for new civil projects totalling $1bn.
The company said that its wholly owned subsidiary, Lunda Construction, is the managing partner in a joint venture that was the low bidder for the Southwest Light Rail Transit project in Minneapolis with a bid of approximately $800m.
The regional transportation project comprises a 14.5-mile extension of the Metro Green Line and involves construction of new light rail infrastructure, including 44 bridges, two cut-and-cover tunnels and 15 new stations.
Tutor Perini’s another wholly owned subsidiary, Frontier-Kemper Constructors, was the low bidder for a $109m tunnelling project for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
Tutor Perini was also the low bidder for the rehabilitation of the Broadway Bridge over the Harlem river in New York City with a bid of approximately $93m.
These projects are expected to be awarded within 60 days.
In February 2018, Tutor Perini/Parsons, a joint venture between Tutor Perini and Parsons Transportation Group, secured a $1.41bn fixed-price contract from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for the $2.7bn, one million ft2 Newark Airport Terminal One design-build project.
The project is part of a redevelopment and modernisation programme of Newark Liberty International Airport and the largest transportation infrastructure design-build contract in New Jersey state history.
The Port Authority said that replacement of outdated Terminal A will improve passenger experience and travel efficiency from roadway access through check-in and gate arrival.
The new, 33-gate common use domestic terminal will be an open, modern terminal with the flexibility in design to grow and change with the increasing demands and the evolving requirements of air travel.
As part of the Terminal One Redevelopment programme, a more efficient roadway network will be provided and parking will be created for about 3,000 vehicles.
The terminal is scheduled for a partial opening in 2021 and full operation in 2022.
