LOS ANGELES — AECOM Technology has announced that a joint venture for which it is subcontracted as the lead designer was awarded a design-build contract for the Circle Drive South project in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Circle Drive South, the largest single construction effort in the city’s history and the province’s first alternative-delivery design-build transportation contract, has a total project value of approximately $277 million. AECOM’s fees for the subcontract were not disclosed.
AECOM professionals will provide design services for this major ring road, which includes a new South bridge that will cross the South Saskatchewan River, 4.3 miles of four- to six-lane divided freeway, four roadway interchanges, and four railway grade separations. AECOM will also provide railway, stormwater, environmental site-remediation, and sound-attenuation services.
"This work is expected to help reduce traffic congestion in the area by nearly 35 percent," said AECOM President and CEO John M. Dionisio. "We are proud to aid in this effort, which will improve quality of life and the impact of traffic on the local environment."
