Flatiron Led Joint Venture Completes Highway Project One Year Early
Broomfield, Colorado (December 11, 2017) – Flatiron Construction Corp. (FLATIRON), one of the largest infrastructure contractors in North America, and its joint venture partner, Blythe Development, completed and opened the Eastern phase of the Greensboro Urban Loop a full year ahead of schedule. The Eastern Loop officially opened to traffic at 8 p.m. on December 6, 2017.
The Flatiron-Blythe team built the four-lane highway which included, completing the U.S. 70 interchange and two new interchanges connecting the Greensboro Loop to Huffine Mill Road and U.S. 29. “The opening of this portion of the highway will increase capacity ultimately saving travelers time and bettering their lives,” said Division Seven Construction Staff Engineer, Brian Smith.
“We congratulate all of the crews that worked tirelessly on this project,” said Daniel Lieberman, Flatiron’s Southeast Vice President and Operations Manager. “Because of their dedication, and support from the NCDOT, this project is opening a full year ahead of schedule.”
Now the teams focus shifts to the next phase of the project — the remaining Rt. 29 interchange. Weather permitting, this phase is anticipated to be completed by December 28, 2018. Once complete, the loop will allow traffic to bypass Greensboro and improve congestion on U.S. 29 and I-40.
