Already one of the Florida’s leading heavy/highway contractors, Ranger Construction is increasing the scope of its bidding activity to include more projects of at least $25 million in size. The move is paying off.
Ranger is nearing completion on a $34-million, I-95 widening project in St. Johns County and a $24-million US-192 widening job in Brevard County, while a $26-million I-4 widening project in Orange County is about halfway finished.
Meanwhile, two similar-sized projects startedearlier this year are now well underway.
Ranger North is widening 6.5 miles of I-95 in northeast Florida, from US-92 in Daytona Beach to SR-40 in Ormond Beach. The $32.1 million contract includes construction of a new lane in each direction, along with milling and resurfacing of existing lanes. The project is scheduled for completion around November 2005.
Ranger is also building 3.5 miles of SR-429 as part of greater Orlando’s beltway system under a $25.8 million contract. The section of four-lane divided highway includes 12 bridges. Subcontractor Leware Construction is doing the bridge work. Completion is scheduled for August 2005.
Other Ranger North projects include widening 2.5 miles of SR-25 (US-27) in Polk County under an $8.2 million contract, with 300 days for completion. Ranger is also widening just over two miles of SR-520 in Orange County under a $9.8 million contract, with 360 days allowed for completion.
