  • Europe, Middle East & Africa, Highways, Press Release
Bechtel and joint-venture partner Enka are building a 38-mile (61-kilometer) four-lane highway in Albania that will stretch from the town of Rrëshen, in the heart of the country, to the northeastern village of Kalimash. The project will be the central leg of a 106-mile (171-kilometer) highway traversing the country from the Adriatic Sea to the northeastern border with Kosovo. The new roadway will cut travel time along the route from six to two hours, boosting coastal trade and northeast tourism. Bechtel and Enka have partnered on two other Eastern European roadways: a 258-mile (415-kilometer) motorway currently under construction in Romania, and a 124-mile (200-kilometer) highway in Croatia.
