Clarkson Construction Company was the joint venture sponsor for Paseo Corridor Constructors (PCC) – a joint venture between Clarkson Construction Company, Kiewit Infrastructure Group, and Massman Construction Company – on this $232 million design-build project in Kansas City, Missouri. The project included replacement of the existing Paseo Bridge over the Missouri River with an iconic, cable-stayed bridge and reconstruction and widening of 4 ½ miles of the I-35/I-29 Corridor from Downtown Kansas City to north of the Armour Road/Route 210 interchange. All work was completed while maintaining more than 100,000 vehicles per day through the Corridor.
A total of eight bridges, including the new cable-stayed bridge over the Missouri River, were constructed or widened. The project reconstructed the Corridor and added lanes – providing three lanes in each direction and building new interchanges at Front Street (a single point urban interchange (SPUI), Levee Road, Bedford Avenue, 16th Avenue and Armour Road/Route 210. Many of the bridges spanned railroads requiring the design-build team to closely coordinate with the Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Union Pacific, Kansas City Southern, Norfolk Southern and Kansas City Terminal Railroads. The roadway bridges required a total of 60,000 square feet of new bridge decks and 112,000 square feet of bridge widening and redecking.
Over 580,000 cubic yards of earth and rock was excavated during the phased construction. Approximately 250,000 square yards of new concrete pavement placed on rock fill base and 280,000 square feet of retaining and noise walls were constructed. Specialty construction items included: traffic signals, highway lighting, asphalt paving, utility relocations, traffic control, pavement marking, and aesthetic treatments.
