Eutaw Construction was awarded the Nissan ILC Roadway contract from Nissan North America. This project involves the construction of a new access roadway and bridge needed to serve Nissan’s new ILC Facility. Since the project is located inside Nissan’s facility, the transportation of ± 30,000 cubic yards of embankment material is the biggest challenge. Eutaw’s scope of work includes clearing & grubbing, earthwork, storm drainage utilities, and the placement of aggregate base material. While other scopes of work, that will be completed by subcontractors, include the installation of a new 140 linear feet, triple-span concrete bridge, asphalt and concrete paving, striping, guardrails and a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) fence. Due to the site being inside a FTZ, careful consideration and planning is required for fence installation, work zones, and access.
Eutaw was awarded a contract to perform work on a 110,000 square foot expansion to the Southern Blanking manufacturing facility that will provide vehicle parts to the General Motors manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee. The scope(s) includes 12,000 cubic yards of undercut excavation, 20,000 cubic yards of borrow excavation, revisions to the existing fire water system, installation of new sewer piping, and over 1,000 linear feet of storm and roof drain piping. The project also includes extending the existing parking lot and installing an at-grade rail crossing inside the facility.
