The Flying Wye is the single largest highway project in Idaho’s history. McAlvain and Nelson Construction entered into a Joint Venture for stage one of the Flying Wye, replacing exits and merge lanes with a three-lane elevated flyover bridge heading east on I-84. Stage one also involved widening the connector to three lanes in both directions and adding on-ramps and lanes to reduce congestion and improve safety. More than 103,000 cubic yards of concrete was used in stage one with more than 330,000 cubic yards of earth excavated.

The entire structure is predominantly post-tensioned cast in place concrete, with a structural steel component utilized for the long-span roof framing at the arena. McAlvain has successfully completed 3 Joint Venture projects with PCL totaling more than $84,000,000 worth of work.
