Flatiron, one of the nation's largest transportation and infrastructure contractors, has been awarded a little more than $37 million in new transportation and wastewater contracts.
In southern California, SANDAG awarded the joint venture of Flatiron-Herzog with a $26 million contract for work on the Santa Margarita Bridge and Second Main Track, near Camp Pendleton in Oceanside, Calif. Crews will remove an existing steel truss bridge and wooden trestle over the Santa Margarita River and replace it with a new cast-in-place concrete box girder bridge and new pre-cast concrete box girder trestle. A second contract for $4.8 million was awarded to the joint venture to remove 20 existing timber bridge spans, replacing them with pre-cast, pre-stressed concrete box girder spans. Work also includes removing existing track and replacing it with new ballasted timber tie tracks.
In northern California, Caltrans awarded Flatiron a $1.8 million contract for work on Highway 198 near Lemoore, Calif. Crews will place approximately 4,000 tons of HMA base repairs and 13,000 tons of rubberized HMA in addition to crack sealing and other minor road work.
Flatiron’s Utah District office recently secured one wastewater contract for $4.5 million from the Timpanogos Special Service District. Flatiron will construct compost curing pads including the demolition, restoration and modification of existing sludge drying beds.
