WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) has been awarded a $48 million contract by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to reconstruct a section of Highway 101: Montecito project in Santa Barbara County, California.
This project is the fourth mainline segment (4D North) awarded to Granite under its Construction Manager/General Contractor (CMGC) contract to reconstruct 10.9 miles of Highway 101. In December 2018, Granite announced that it had been selected as the CMGC for the overall Highway 101: Carpinteria to Santa Barbara project. The estimated construction contract value for the remaining segments is approximately $195 million. The first mainline segment (4A) was completed last year through Carpinteria. Segments 4C and 4B are underway and scheduled to be completed in 2023 and 2024. Segment 4D North is another significant step toward improving the traffic flow through this critical corridor.
“Our work will increase mobility for the community by adding a peak-hour HOV lane in each direction of travel and improve multiple elements of Highway 101 through Montecito, CA,” said Granite Vice President of Regional Operations, Larry Camilleri. “This project is another step to help alleviate the rush-hour traffic coming into and leaving Santa Barbara and we are excited to deliver this important project for Caltrans and the Santa Barbara County communities surrounding the project.”
The project is planned to begin in June 2023 and is expected to be completed in June 2026.
