Page Olive Connector

KCI submitted the highest scored technical proposal for this design-build project, and also submitted the lowest initial bid that was 10% under budget. We then worked with the owner to further enhance the project without cost increase. The project consists of a six-lane highway comprised of 60% bridges and 40% pavement above the area floodplain. KCI’s design-build team was prepared upon project award, and began construction three months after award, working through the harsh winter of 2010 and subsequently achieving project completion months ahead of schedule. We exceeded the workforce diversity and DBE subcontracting goals, while working over 150,000 manhours in a two year span with no OSHA violations.

“As the region’s second design-build highway project through an environmentally sensitive corridor, the Page Olive Connector presented a unique set of challenges in all areas of the project. From day one, KCI met these challenges, head on, by continually developing and implementing innovative solutions.”
