Kraemer/IHC JV Selected for North I-25 Johnstown to Fort Collins Express Lanes Project

24-Nov-2017 to 30-Nov-2017

CDOT has chosen Kraemer/IHC Joint Venture (JV) as the apparent selected team to constuct the next segment of Express Lanes on Colorado I-25. CDOT will now enter negotiations with the team and plans to announce the final award in the near future. The project will increase capacity on I-25 between Johnstown and Fort Collins by adding an Express Lane in each direction. The team will also replace aging bridges and widen others, create new pedestrian and bicycle access under I-25 at Kendall Parkway, and connect the Cache la Poudre River Regional Trail under I-25.

Work is scheduled to begin in 2018 and is expected to be completed in late 2021. There is a 10% DBE goal on the design portion of the project and 12% DBE goal on construction. CDOT also established a 2% ESB goal on the total contract value.

Kraemer North America’s headquarters is in Plain, WI with a regional office in Castle Rock, and Interstate Highway Construction (IHC) is based in Englewood, CO. The team was selected after a comprehensive RFP process that included a short-list of three qualified teams.
