Granite Construction Gets Notice Of Default From Oregon DoT On US 20 Project

Granite Construction Inc. (GVA) announced that its joint venture, Yaquina River Contractors or "YRC", received a Notice of Default from the Oregon Department of Transportation or "ODOT" relating to the US 20 project.

Granite is confident it is not in default of its obligations under the contract and that the allegations contained in the Notice are without merit. The company will contest the Notice, Granite Construction said.

Granite has been in discussions with ODOT to address design issues and delays on the project due to unanticipated and continuing geotechnical conditions and landslide movement. Granite has been performing its duties under the contract including working with ODOT to determine how to safely and most cost-effectively complete the project.

In October 2011, a Dispute Review Board or "DRB" concluded that ODOT is responsible to pay YRC for the costs of the delay and new design and construction work required to address the ongoing landslide issues. ODOT rejected the DRB's findings and unilaterally disbanded the board.
