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.
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.
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.
