Skanska has, as part of a joint venture with JH Lynch, signed a contract with Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) to reconstruct Route 146 between 1-295 and Route 146A, and realign the Route 146/146A interchange in Rhode Island, USA. The total contract is worth $167M. Skanska’s share of the contract is worth USD $84M, which will be included in the US order bookings for the first quarter of 2022.
The project includes the staged construction of Route 146 along with construction of a new flyover bridge and other structures. In addition, Skanska will perform bridge rehabilitation, roadway reconstruction, new bridge construction, retaining wall construction, drainage construction, utility relocation, handling and disposing of contaminated materials and milling and paving of eight miles of Route 146 to the Massachusetts border.
When completed, the project will improve traffic safety, restore critical infrastructure to a state of good repair, reduce congestion, increase system reliability, and enhance freight movement for economic vitality in the region.
