Whitestone, N.Y.-based Skanska USA Civil was the apparent low bidder to replace the southernmost 1-mile leg of Seattle’s state Route 99 Alaskan Way Viaduct—the first portion of a larger project. The bids, opened on April 14, are for work near Seattle’s sports stadiums and shipping port. The $114.57-million bid was 25% under the Washington State Dept. of Transportation engineer’s estimate. The project will begin this summer with removal of elevated viaduct sections.
