Kansas Turnpike Awards EPC Contract to Elevate Bridges

The Kansas Turnpike Authority announced that it has awarded Burns & McDonnell, Kansas City, MO, a $3.7 million contract to provide Engineer-Procure-Construct (EPC) services to raise ten bridges crossing over the Turnpike (I-35). “Increasing the height of specific bridges that cross over the Turnpike, was identified as a way to aid freight movement on the Turnpike and decrease commercial traffic on local roads and highways,” the authority says.
