Description of Project: 

Sukut utilized its significant fleet of heavy earthmoving equipment for the mass grading operations required to construct the new Alton Parkway Extension Project. This project and the adjoining County of Orange project connect the existing Alton Parkway Road from Irvine Blvd. in the City of Irvine, through the County of Orange and connecting at the 241 Toll Road in the City of Lake Forest. The combined length of the two projects total over 2.1 miles of new roadway.

Sukut temporarily relocated critical waterline facilities to facilitate the construction of a large box culvert . This work lead to a million cubic yards of mass grading in order to construct a new six lane 12-mile roadway along with a wildlife habitat area and new County jail facilities. The project included overlapping construction of cutting edge storm water facilities such as 24 filterra boxes and a large gabion structure along with a complex arrangement of water and sewer pipelines, dry utilities, and street improvements.
