Strong and efficient infrastructure is the very foundation of our communities and nation. As budgets tighten and consumers demand that dollars are spent more wisely, it's important to choose a heavy civil construction company that delivers certainty in four critical areas: schedule, cost, quality and safety. When it comes to heavy highway construction and building our country's infrastructure, these are McCarthy's only goals. 

Dramatic population growth in many areas has increased demand for new transportation infrastructure. These important heavy civil construction projects ensure our country remains a leader in economic vitality, job creation and quality of life — something that can’t happen if people are constantly stuck in traffic.

Our experience includes new-lane capacity projects as well as repairing and repaving our aging roadways, bridges and railway systems. As your heavy civil construction partner, we focus on limiting disruption to the traveling public and re-opening roadways to full traffic as quickly as possible.

We meet your goals your way — with traditional project delivery or by leveraging our experience in alternative delivery methods, such as design-build, CM at-risk and CM/GC. While we have years of experience in civil construction, your team understands your unique project and community, so we're committed to working together to find the best solution.
