Amtrak selected the Kiewit and J.F. Shea Construction joint venture to build the Frederick Douglass Tunnel in Baltimore, the rail agency announced in a Feb. 6 press release. It’s the second of three major components in an $6 billion program to replace the 150-year-old Baltimore & Potomac Tunnel.
Omaha, Nebraska-based Kiewit and Walnut, California-headquartered J.F. Shea will deliver the pair of rail tunnels through a construction manager at-risk delivery method, per the release.
