The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CCT) are implementing salmon and steelhead enhancement projects to mitigate the effects of hydropower development on fish populations in the Okanogan and Columbia rivers of Washington. The projects will provide wide-ranging ecological, social and economic benefits within those river basins.

For GTF JV, a joint venture of Granite Construction Northeast, Traylor Bros. and Frontier Kemper, the East Side Access project for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Capital Construction Company (MTA CCC) is much more than just a normal railroad project. “The overall program has been [in] design for more than 40 years,” Project Executive Stephen Price declares.

With a recently opened office in Houston, Seattle-based Global Diving & Salvage Inc. is steadily covering more ground – or water, that is. Its founders began the company in 1979 and grew it to be a reputable diving contractor in the Pacific Northwest. However, at the turn of the century, the company began to look north, south, and east for new possibilities.

Now embarking on the most significant modernization project in its more than 80-year history, the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is not only placing itself in a position to meet the ever-changing demands of passengers, but also to improve security throughout the facility. The $201.6 million modernization project is intended to not only increase passenger convenience and efficiency, but also encourage airlines to add new, non-stop flights.

Sometimes, the final touch that can help distinguish a structure is the last coat of paint. That addition of color can make it far more memorable, or even help restore an aged structure to its original glory. And that is what Abhe & Svoboda Inc. strives to do in its work.

RoadSafe Traffic Systems Inc. may be a national company with 30 offices from coast to coast, but Senior Vice President Kathi Holst explains that each office is fully trained in its local nuances. “We can be as similar in our branch operations as states are in their specifications and regulations, which they are not,” Holst says. “If every department of transportation did things the same way, then we could also. But they don’t, so we need to be flexible and virtual and pretty fluid to move where we need to move and go where we need to go.”

As a major international transportation hub, it has been crucial for the Miami International Airport (MIA) to build, expand and renovate in order to better serve the thousands of passengers travelling through its grounds each day. As the airport has steadily moved its way into a new, more efficient facility it has benefitted from partnering with some of the most reliable names in architecture, engineering and construction contracting across the globe – one of those names being the Florida-based Munilla Construction Management LLC (MCM).

Major infrastructure projects are nothing new at A.B. Won Pat International Airport in Guam – over the last 30 years, the airport has seen the construction of an international air terminal and a major expansion project. The third and current air terminal facility was completed in 1998 at a cost of $271 million funded by the sale of general revenue bonds. This airport facility remains the largest capital improvement project ever done on Guam.
