St. Louis MetroLink extension contractors receive AGC honors


The Associated General Contractors of St. Louis recently presented 2005 Keystone Awards to MetroLink Cross County extension contractors.

The association presented the “General Contractor-Industrial/Infrastructure Construction Project” award to McCarthy Building Cos., which is constructing the Facility 2 portion of the project, and “Specialty Contractor-Building Construction Project” award to Budrovich Excavating Inc.

Running between Kingsland and Ritz Carlton Drive, the Facility 2 segment is the most difficult portion of the eight-mile, $550 million Cross County construction, according to MetroLink. The segment includes building more than 1.3 miles of underground light-rail tunnels and two underground stations in a narrow space within a few feet of residential and commercial properties.
