WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) has been awarded a $64 million contract for the Jurupa Road Grade Separation project by the Riverside County Transportation Department in Jurupa Valley, California. The contract award was included in Granite’s second quarter committed and awarded projects (CAP).
The scope of work includes separating Jurupa Road and the Union Pacific Railroad by constructing a grade separation and relocating existing rail spurs.
