A Vital Link
Mass transit does more than power mobility. By linking urban and suburban living, it revitalizes city centers, creates jobs, attracts tourism and secures future investment, all of which spurs economic growth and changes lives for the better. For the last decade, Granite has remained one of the top 10 rail and transit contractors in the U.S.
Whether constructing new rail lines or revitalizing vintage trolley tracks, we provide intricate utility relocation, civil infrastructure and traffic phasing plans for busy urban centers.
Rail and transit stations intersect where art meets function. Fast and efficient, stations have become artistic showpieces, opportunities to admire some of the nation’s most coveted landmarks.
We’re experts in elevating and grade-separating railway from roadway, allowing uninterrupted traffic flow, reducing risk and offering the safest routes for trains, pedestrians and vehicles.
High-Speed + Rapid Transit
To meet the needs of our expanding population, we regularly partner with agencies to secure funding and provide design-build, operation and maintenance planning for high-speed rail and rapid transit.
Metro/Subways + Tunnels
We’ve come a long way since the 1904 New York Subway was tunneled by hand by 8,000 laborers. Today, advanced methods such as cut-and-cover and tunnel boring machines allow for a stable, consistent path through bedrock and soft soil.
