Cianbro and a joint venture partner have been awarded a $215 million contract to modernize and expand facilities at the U.S. Land Port of Entry in Alexandria Bay, N.Y.

Pittsfield-based Cianbro, Maine’s largest construction company, will partner with Northland Associates Inc. of Liverpool, N.Y.

The Waterville Sentinel reported that Phase 1 of the award made by U.S. General Services Administration’s Public Buildings Service is worth $90.8 million and is expected to take two-and-a-half years to complete. Remaining phases are expected to be completed by 2022.

“The approximately $260 million project will replace the existing port,” GSA stated on its website.  “Phase I includes construction of a commercial inspection warehouse with inspection bays, commercial inspection lanes (with split-level booths for either commercial or non-commercial), impound lot, and a portion of the elevated parking over the commercial side. Phase I also includes acquisition of the two remaining necessary parcels of land.”

Phase 2, GSA added, would include “construction of a new main administration building, a new outbound inspection facility, a new veterinary services building, non-commercial inspection lanes, a new non-commercial secondary inspection plaza, new non-intrusive inspection buildings, and employee and visitor parking areas.”

Phase 1 construction is expected to begin this month, the Sentinel reported.

“This will certainly help Cianbro to grow when you get a job of this size,” Cianbro communications manager Alan Grover told the newspaper. “It’s great for the company and helps us to continue to grow, and the feeling is, growth of a Maine business like Cianbro is an indirect benefit for Maine.”
