Based on my review of the facts of this case and an analysis of the applicable law, it is my determination that the off-hauling of asphalt grindings and clean soil from the Highway 99 Realignment Project to outside locations is a public work subject to California prevailing wage requirements. Facts On December 4, 2015 and July 25, 2016, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) and Granite Construction Company (Granite) entered into two contracts representing two phases of construction: Contract 06-2HT114, the early release construction package, and Contract 06-2HT104, the main construction package (Contracts), respectively. The Contracts call for realignment of Highway 99 through the City of Fresno from miles north of Ashlan Avenue to miles north of Olive Avenue (Realignment Project). The main construction package is valued at $127,651,406, and the early release construction package, is valued at $26,587,424.
