The rainy summer season is always challenging for Florida’s asphalt paving contractors, so Ranger Construction crews work diligently to keep projects moving along.
Current projects includes reconstructing and widening nearly three miles of US-27 in Polk County under an $8.7 million FDOT contract.
In the Orlando area, Ranger is resurfacing a section of SR-429 for the Orlando-Orange Expressway Authority. The $9.8 million project includes signage, pavement marking and guardrail.
Ranger is performing similar work on SR-500/US-192 in Osceola County under a $3.4 million contract, and on SR-A1A in Indian River County under a $1.6 million contract, both with the FDOT.
At Indian River State College in St. Lucie County, Ranger is preparing the site and paving for the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Also in St. Lucie, work has begun on a design-build project to widen nearly nine miles of I-95 under a $78 million contract. Ranger is the prime contractor, while other team members include Wantman Group, Atkins, and Cone & Graham.
Ranger is improving several sections of Okeechobee Blvd. in Palm Beach County, while crews from both the West Palm Beach and Miami operations continue providing widening and paving work for I-595 Express, a major expansion project in Broward County. Ranger’s two subcontracts on the I-595 project exceed $80 million and include paving adjoining Turnpike lanes.
Additional Turnpike work in South Florida includes widening and resurfacing other sections, including numerous toll plazas and ramps, under contracts totaling more than $10.5 million.
