Transportation & Civil Construction Services
The civil transportation infrastructure is what drives communities and nations. McCarthy civil transportation construction helps communities thrive and move as they grow. Our experienced builders have completed highway expansions, tunnels and railroad projects around the nation. We have constructed a wide array of complex projects ranging from light rail systems to ten lane freeway expansions in diverse locations and situations. Through it all, our careful hands-on approach to the job has remained the cornerstone of our success in the transportation civil construction industry.
In our years, we've developed transportation construction projects in a variety of climates and circumstances. We help strengthen the foundations of communities with our commitment to providing the very best construction services possible. McCarthy has worked on transportation infrastructure projects such as:
McCarthy has built multiple highway and freeway construction projects. Among them was the State Highway 190 @ US 75 project in Plano, TX. This project required the construction of 14 highway bridges composed of concrete beams and structural steel, and over 40,000 cubic yards of concrete. Our team completed 1,368,067 square feet of bridge deck and 73,000 square yards of concrete paving throughout the project. Learn more about this and our other civil transportation projects.
McCarthy has partnered with cities like Dallas and St. Louis to upgrade aspects of their rail transportation infrastructure.
In Dallas, the Trinity Railway Express project was a two phase conversion of an at-grade single line rail into two elevated lines, which eliminated many traffic conflicts between trains and auto traffic at three key intersections.
The Cross County Metrolink Extension included the demolition and replacement of Forest Park Parkway and the construction of a new tunnel, two new stations, and the replacement of two bridges. The new light-rail tunnel runs 1.32 miles.
The Lindbergh Boulevard Tunnel is an example of our tunnel construction projects. In order to carry traffic under the new 12L-30R runway that was part of the Lambert-St. Louis International Expansion Program, we constructed the tunnel. The 1,418 foot tunnel reliably serves travelers and is just one example of McCarthy's transportation construction.
