WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced it has been awarded a $12 million contract for the Oakhurst Midtown Connector project by the County of Madera in Oakhurst, California. The contract was included in Granite's third quarter 2020 backlog.
By constructing a new two-lane road connecting State Route 41 with Indian Springs Road/High School Road, in Oakhurst, traffic congestion from Highway 41 to Road 426 will be alleviated.
