Amid intensified competition during the slower economy, Ranger Construction was still able to secure a number of new road construction contracts over the past several months.
At Ranger‘s North Division, covering the greater Orlando area to Daytona, new work includes a $17.25 million project to reconstruct a section of CR-54 in Polk County and a $9.58 million Bunnell Rd. / Eden Park Ave. reconstruction job for Seminole County.
Ranger Central, which works the Palm Beach area north through Cocoa Beach, is performing widening, milling and resurfacing work on Alt. A1A under a $10.39 million contract with Palm Beach County. In St. Lucie County, the division landed a $733,000 job improving sidewalks and signalization along Angle Rd. in Fort Pierce.
In Brevard County, Ranger is widening and resurfacing SR-513 near Cocoa Beach for $8.27 million, performing similar work on SR-A1A for $5.3 million, and upgrading bridge railings along SR-528 for $2.1 million, under contracts with the Florida DOT.
Ranger’s South Division, operating from south Palm Beach County to the Florida Keys, also picked up a DOT contract worth $2.1 million, for milling and resurfacing work on I-595 and SR-862 in Broward County.
The Vecellio Group also operates in the Mid-Atlantic States. Vecellio & Grogan and its Sharpe Bros. division have heavy/highway projects underway in North Carolina, West Virginia and Virginia, with work progressing as the winter weather allows.
