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.
This $12 million contract involves widening one of the main thoroughfares (Highway 431) that runs through the City of Franklin, Tennessee. Heavy daily traffic volumes along with the close proximity of occupied homes and the local high school which houses over 2,000+ students and teachers make this a very challenging project. Eutaw’s scope of work includes traffic control, earthwork, paving, storm drainage utilities, and the relocation of sanitary sewer, gas, water, and communication utilities within the projects limits of construction. Eutaw’s scope also includes landscaping, hardscapes and signage, electrical, and traffic signalization.
