Granite Construction Awarded Contract for Ave J Interchange Improvements in Lancaster, California

WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) has been selected by the City of Lancaster to lead an approximately $30 million contract for various improvements to the Avenue J (Ave J) Interchange at California State Route 14 (SR 14). The project will be funded by Caltrans, the City of Lancaster, and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (LA Metro) and be included in Granite’s first quarter CAP 2023.

The project scope consists of widening the existing northside on- and off-ramps, constructing new on- and off-ramps on the south side of Ave J, and building four new retaining walls. Additionally, the project will involve landscape beautification. Upon completion, the new northbound off-ramp and the southbound on-ramp to SR 14 will provide an additional access point to the highway, improving safety by relieving congestion on SR 14 and providing increased usability for Ave J.

To complete the project, Granite will supply approximately 17,000 tons of asphalt materials from its Big Rock Facility in nearby Llano, CA.

“The City of Lancaster has been a great partner since we started operating in the Antelope Valley 35 years ago,” said Granite Area Manager Andrew Burk. “Granite has a long-standing commitment to safety and quality, and the company is proud to have been selected for this important project.”

The project is scheduled to start in Spring 2023 and is expected to be completed by Spring 2024.
