About KEA Constructors

Midwest Heavy Highway Construction Experts.
KEA Constructors has been serving the Midwest for nearly a decade working with county, state, and federal entities to improve and restore local railways and bridges. Although KEA began working primarily on bridge construction and rehabilitation projects, our dedication to employee safety, growth, and project success has allowed us to see a consistent increase in business over the years. We have since expanded our client base to include railroads, utility companies, and other private owners. Our work has recently branched out into hydraulic structure construction, shoring, demolition, and structure repair work.
