The strategy to proceed with a design-build contract arrangement was undertaken as a means to facilitate acceleration of the Project, reducing the duration of impact to adjacent communities and returning the corridor to full utility a number of years earlier, including significant improved safety with interchange improvements, wider shoulders, ramps and bridges.


On April 23, 2009, the Board awarded Contract C0822 for the design and construction of the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Widening Project to Kiewit Infrastructure West, Co. and established an original LOP budget of $1,034M for the Project.
