SACRAMENTO, California – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $4.5 million contract Aug. 26 to Granite Construction Co. of Watsonville to repair a section of runway at Hill Air Force Base near Ogden, Utah.
The project will repave about 860 feet of deteriorated asphalt with concrete and rebuild the runway shoulder in that section.
“Replacing the asphalt with concrete will improve the performance of the runway and help the base remain mission ready,” said Arianna Raymundo, project manager for the Corps.
Granite will begin by surveying the runway as part of the design-build contract and construction is expected to begin in 2015.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental restoration and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight western states, including California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming.
