Granite Joint Venture Bid Selected As Best Value For I-4 Ultimate Project In Florida

Granite Construction Incorporated (NYSE: GVA) announced today that the construction joint-venture team comprised of Skanska USA Civil Southeast, Inc., Granite Construction Company and the Lane Construction Corporation has been selected to design and build the I-4 Ultimate Project in Seminole County, Florida. The Skanska-Granite-Lane joint venture is part of the I-4 Mobility Partners team—the concessionaire selected by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) as the best value proposer for this public-private partnership contract.

Granite will book its 30 percent share of the $2.32 billion construction contract into backlog once a final contract is approved and a notice to proceed is issued. Commercial and financial close, as well as a notice to proceed, is expected to occur later this summer. The project is expected to be financed using equity, debt and a loan as part of the Transportation Investment and Financing Infrastructure Act (TIFIA).

Scope of the project includes the reconstruction of 21 miles of I-4 in Seminole County. The I-4 Ultimate project adds four tolled express lanes while maintaining the existing free general use lanes. Construction is expected to start in the first half of 2015, with estimated completion by end of 2021.

The I-4 Ultimate project is being procured by FDOT as a public-private partnership. The concession agreement sets the concessionaire’s responsibility to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the facility for approximately 40 years. Using the public-private partnership approach, large, complex projects can be combined and accelerated, advancing the benefits of the project to the public sooner than traditional methods.
