Skanska has signed a contract with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to construct a four-lane highway with freeway connectors on State Route 905 in San Diego, Calif., USA. The contract is worth about USD 101 M, about SEK 950 M, which will be included in US order bookings for the second quarter 2019.
Located at Otay Mesa, one of three ports of entry in the San Diego-Tijuana Mexico metropolitan region, the project includes two freeway-to-freeway flyover bridges that will connect three highways (SR 125, SR11 and SR 905), as well as a 1.25-mile green field extension of SR11 to the east toward the future port-of-entry. The project features 20,000 cubic yards of structural concrete, 40,000 cubic yards of concrete paving, 35,000 tons of asphalt, and 1.1 million cubic yards of earthwork.
