Our Legacy, Our Future
Background on The Lane Construction Corporation
The Lane Construction Corporation was founded in 1890 by railroad engineer John S. Lane. As the nation’s automobile industry and demand for quality roads grew, so did Lane.
Throughout the early part of the twentieth century, Lane specialized in road construction. In the 1940’s, Lane expanded into other areas, such as military bases, to support the war effort. In the 1950’s and 60’s, Lane helped make the Interstate Highway System a reality, building some of the nation’s most well-known superhighways. Throughout the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, Lane added dams and private site development to its impressive portfolio.
Today, Lane is one of America’s premier heavy civil contractors for public and private owners, constructing quality highways, bridges, locks, dams, racetracks, and mass transit and airport systems in 20 states.
Lane and its 11 affiliates also produce hot and warm mix asphalt, precast concrete, and mines aggregate at 70 plants and 11 quarries from Maine to Florida to Texas.
In over 120 years, Lane has never failed to complete a contract.
With an eye on the future, Lane is focused on strengthening its bid-build approach, growing internationally, and through more design-builds, public-private partnerships and joint ventures.
As Lane prepares for a promising future, one thing is certain—Lane’s values will remain a core part of who we are.
