Eutaw Construction was a major subcontractor for the Western Wake Freeway design/build project. The prime contractor was a joint venture formed by Archer Western and Granite Construction. This project consisted of grading and drainage on the Western Wake Freeway beginning south of Apex, NC and ending at Cary, NC. The new roadway construction was a 12.6 mile concrete paved roadway in Wake County, North Carolina with 1.5 million CY of unclassified excavation, 300,000 CY of borrow material, and 700,000 CY of excess excavation. The project is a six-lane, controlled-access toll road and is expected to save customers up to 20 minutes per full trip. The Western Wake Freeway opened to traffic in December 2012. The project was the first United States designed/build project to utilize an all electronic toll collection system where no stop and pay toll booths were required.
The Old Taylor Road Widening project was an effort by the City of Oxford and A2H Engineering to widen the existing roadway in anticipation of the influx of traffic for the new Baptist Memorial Hospital. The project consisted of approximately 2,200 CY of unclassified excavation, 4,700 CY of off-site borrow and 1,000 Tons of crushed limestone base material. In addition, the project entailed constructing two modular block retaining walls with a total of 2,575 SF to allow for the roadway widening. Other incidental items of work included storm drainage, traffic signals, hot-mix asphalt, curb & gutter and traffic striping.
