In a separate development, Lehman-Roberts, a Granite Corporation company, was selected by Dement Construction Company as a subcontractor for an infrastructure improvement project in Memphis.

The project is valued at approximately $21 million and is part of Granite’s second quarter CAPs and is for the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

The focus is on infrastructure improvements at the intersection of Interstate 22, State Route 4 and US Route 78 near downtown Memphis.

The current phase, the second, will build additional lanes and overpasses to ease traffic congestion near downtown Memphis.

This follows the completion of the first paving phase, which lasted from 2018 to 2023.

Patrick Nelson, President of Lehman-Roberts and Memphis Stone and Gravel, said, “Lehman-Roberts is pleased to be able to contribute to this significant infrastructure upgrade and looks forward to continuing its work to improve transportation networks throughout the region.”

Lehman-Roberts will produce 178,000 tonnes

Memphis Stone & Gravel, also owned by Granite, will supply the project materials, including 2,600 tons of washed sand, 182,000 tons of clay gravel and 32,000 tons of screened gravel from its DeSoto facility.

The project is scheduled to begin this month and is scheduled for completion in July 2028.
