Tagged with: | | | | | |

US construction company Granite Construction has bagged a contract worth $45 million from the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority to execute the Runway 16R-34L Reconstruction Project at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport in Reno, Nevada.

Granite Construction’s scope of work covers the reconstruction of a 20-year-old runway with nearly 40,000 cubic yards of concrete, 22,000 tons of aggregate base, 25,000 tons of hot-mix asphalt, 40,000 tons of asphalt treated base rock, and 60,000 tons of wildlife rock that is usually used between runways and taxiways to keep animals from burrowing or nesting.

The company’s Lockwood Facility will supply the construction materials for the project.

Brian Dowd – Granite Construction Regional Vice President said: “Granite has a long history of performing work at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, performing close to $100 million of work over the past twenty years.

“We look forward to once again working with Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority on this critical infrastructure improvement project.”

Construction on the project is likely to commence in Q2 2020 and is estimated to be wrapped up in Q4 2021.
