ENR MidAtlantic named Lane Construction its 2015 Contractor of the Year in the region, which covers Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. In recent years, Lane made a big push into the P3 market for transportation infrastructure. The strategy landed the company on some of the largest highway projects in the region. Following the completion of the $2-billion 495 Express Lanes project in the Virginia suburbs outside Washington, D.C., the team of Fluor-Lane set its focus on the adjacent 95 Express Lanes project. The $1-billion 29-mile project expanded and extended existing HOV lanes along one of the busiest corridors in the region. The 29-month-long project was completed on time with more than 4 million work-hours logged and no lost time accidents.

While Lane is well established in the region’s highway sector, it is also positioned to leverage emerging opportunities in the energy sector. For its first major foray into the sector in the region, Lane teamed with Gemma Power Systems last year to build two 800MW combined cycle power plants in Pennsylvania for Panda Power Funds. Valued at more than $800 million each, they were among the largest projects to break ground in the region in 2013.

Lane Construction will be featured in ENR MidAtlantic’s August 24/31, 2015 issue, which will also include our annual ranking of the Top Contractors in the region by revenue.
