SAN GABRIEL VALLEY, CA – Skanska, a leading global construction and development firm, has signed a contract with the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments (SGVCOG) to make improvements to the State Route 57/60 interchange that runs through the City of Diamond Bar and the City of Industry in Southern California. The total contract value is worth $267 million.
The purpose of the project is to reduce traffic at the State Route 57/60 interchange that is part of the State Route 57/60 confluence. This two-mile stretch of highway is the sixth most congested freeway segment in the country and third most congested in California.
