SEATTLE-New York City-based Skanska is expanding its infrastructure construction and civil engineering operations to the northwestern US. It was just awarded the assignment for the Alaskan Way Viaduct in Seattle, a contract that amounts to $115 million. The project has committed funding from the state gas tax and federal sources.

The customer is the Washington State Department of Transportation. The project involves the construction of a new 0.8-mile viaduct on the southern section of the Alaskan Way on the State Route 99 bypass in downtown Seattle.
