Ranger’s Ft. Pierce office has received a $14 million contract to mill and resurface 16 miles of Florida’s Turnpike (SR-91) in St. Lucie County, FL. The FDOT contract also includes drainage work. It allows just under a year for completion.
Ranger Central also picked up the City of Port St. Lucie’s $800,000 annual resurfacing contract. That and other projects are temporarily on hold pending completion of emergency repair work along Indian River Drive in St. Lucie County and US-1 in Brevard County due to Hurricanes Frances and Jeanne (see hurricane article and photos).
Ranger’s West Palm Beach office has been awarded Palm Beach County’s annual milling and resurfacing contract, valued at $5.6 million for 2004-2005.
New work at Ranger North includes a second reconstruction contract on SR-520 in Orange County, FL. The $18.6 million project adjoins an existing $9.8 million job, for a total of eight miles of road work. Ranger is widening a two-lane section from SR-528 (Beeline Highway) to the St. Johns River (Brevard County) into a four-lane highway.
With a production schedule of 590 days, the new contract involves moving 360,000 cu. yds. of borrowed material for the subgrade, installing more than 25,000 ln. ft. of drainage pipe, hauling and grading 168,000 tons of base rock, and laying down 58,000 tons of asphalt pavement.
The contract also includes a new bridge span and two box culverts, which will be built by subcontractor Leware Construction.
