Under a build-finance contract, with partners Duit Construction and National Bank of Canada, Shimmick is delivering this $261 million to build and finance the new west section of the Gilcrease Expressway project.
As lead partner, Shimmick will construct five miles of new greenfield, four-lane toll road just west of Tulsa. The new expressway will connect L.L. Tisdale to I-44 and complete the western loop around the Tulsa metro area.
Shimmick will construct numerous bridges, including two major structures, one in each direction, over the Arkansas River, as well as bridges at multiple interchanges along the alignment. The project is part of the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority’s Driving Forward program.
The project is slated for completion in 2022.
