Colorado DOT Sues Flatiron-AECOM Over Late $204M Highway Job
The lawsuit, filed in Colorado’s Denver district court on Aug. 1, accuses Flatiron and AECOM of breach of contract. CDOT awarded a $204.3-million design-build contract to the joint venture in June 2016 for its C-470 project. Plans call for the addition of two westbound express lanes, one eastbound tolled express lane and other improvements. The original deadline for final completion was Feb. 19, 2019. Change orders extended the deadline to October 2019. But CDOT says the project is still not complete. A federal court judge has scheduled a 19-day jury trial to begin on July 17, 2023 in that case.
