Salini Impregilo with Lane wins a $134.6m contract to build a new highway section in Florida
Salini Impregilo’s U.S. subsidiary, The Lane Construction Corporation, has won a $134.6 million contract to build a section of Suncoast Parkway 2, a new highway leading north of Tampa, Florida.
The contract confirms Salini Impregilo and Lane’s leadership in roads and highways sector, as well as extends its decades-old presence in a state where it is involved in some of the most important projects, including the $2.3 billion I-4 Ultimate near Orlando.
Suncoast Parkway 2, also known as SR 589, will be a four-lane, limited access toll-road extending north for about 13 miles from the existing Suncoast Parkway. It is part of a regional corridor along the western coast of Florida.
Under the contract, Lane will build the second of two sections that will comprise Suncoast Parkway 2. The section will run from South of SR 700 (US 98) to SR 44 in Hernando and Citrus Counties.
This project will involve the construction of 15 bridges, milling and resurfacing, base work, drainage improvements, curb and gutter, traffic signals, lighting and signing, guardrail, retaining walls, sidewalk, and a multi-use trail.
The Suncoast Parkway 2 will help reduce commuting times and improve sustainability, by contributing to the reduction of emissions along the existing roadway network between Citrus County and the Tampa Bay Region.
Construction is to begin in early 2018 and take about 48 months to complete.
Salini Impregilo with Lane has had a strong presence in Florida for decades, having completed more than 450 stand-alone and plant projects in the state in the last 20 years. In addition to the I-4 Ultimate, in the state it is working on the SR 528/Innovation Way and the Florida Turnpike from South of Osceola Parkway to Beachline Expressway. Other notable projects include U.S. 17-92 at SR 436, an “I Build America” award-winning project, and the Max Brewer Bridge Replacement project, also a recipient of an award.
In recent months in the United States, the Group has won more than $2 billion in new contracts in various infrastructure segments. In the water segment, it won the $580 million Northeast Boundary Tunnel in Washington, D.C., and the $188 million Three Rivers Protection & Overflow Reduction Tunnel in Indiana to expand sewage systems.
In the highways and bridges segment, it won a $336 million extension of the I-395 Express Lanes in Virginia, a $232 million replacement of the Unionport Bridge in New York, and a $118 million reconstruction of a section of the I-70 in Pennsylvania.
