Flatiron Awarded Contract for Design-Build in Winston-Salem
Broomfield, Colorado (September 12, 2016) – Flatiron Construction Corp. (FLATIRON), one of the largest infrastructure contractors in North America, and joint venture partner Blythe Development Company (BDC), have secured a contract to reconstruct a portion of US 421/I-40 Business through the City of Winston-Salem.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) awarded the FLATIRON-BDC team the design-build contract Sept. 9, 2016. Preconstruction activities are expected to begin later this year, with mobilization slated for late 2017.
The project will reconstruct a 1.2-mile section of Business 40 from west of Fourth Street to east of Church Street and includes removing the existing pavement and replacing it with new concrete pavement. Entrance and exit ramps will be upgraded, and most of the bridges on and over the highway will be replaced to meet current standards.
This corridor provides an integral connector for the City of Winston-Salem as commuters, residents and businesses depend on it daily. The reconstruction of this vital roadway is a signature project in which Winston-Salem and NCDOT have the opportunity to redefine the entrance to the downtown area.
FLATIRON, with southeast headquarters based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and BDC are currently partnered on $400M worth of heavy civil work in North Carolina.
