St. Andrews Works on all Aspects of T-REX
During August, 2002, St. Andrews Construction Services Corp. was awarded a major ongoing contract to provide critical services to the T-REX Interstate Expansion Project.
When completed in 2006, the $1.67 billion T-REX Project helped alleviate traffic congestion and open new and easier modes of transportation in central and southwest Denver through construction of lightrail systems, highway improvements, demolition and reconstruction of antiquated bridges, access roads, and drainage improvement.
St. Andrews was awarded a three-year contract to provide critical electrical infrastructure systems for both the highway and lightrail components of T-REX at a cost of more than $5 million.
As part of the first major contract signed by the T-REX Highway Division,St. Andrewswas selected to perform installation of arterial vehicular detection systems and closeted circuit cameras, bridge lighting, center median high mast lighting and multiple parking garages.
