Washington Group's Bonding Restored.

Business Editors

BOISE, Idaho--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 10, 2001

Washington Group International, Inc. announced today that the Federal Bankruptcy Court in Reno, Nevada, has approved an agreement in principle between the company and Federal Insurance Company to provide renewed bonding capacity.

The agreement provides Washington Group with bonding capacity for joint venture projects and adequate bonding capacity for those projects that the company intends to pursue alone. The agreement has been consented to by the company's lenders under its current working capital facility.

"A bonding facility like this one -- for a company working through a restructuring such as ours -- is unprecedented in the engineering and construction industry and sends a strong message of support for Washington Group and the success of our Plan of Reorganization," said Stephen G. Hanks, Washington Group President and Chief Executive Officer.

"With this bonding capacity, we can return to an aggressive business development strategy, especially in the growing transportation infrastructure market," Mr. Hanks added. "This is another positive step in our accelerated financial restructuring and an important indicator of the financial community's confidence in Washington Group's operational performance."

Washington Group International, Inc. is a leading international engineering and construction firm. At work in 43 states and more than 35 countries, the company offers a full life-cycle of services as a preferred provider of premier science, engineering, construction, program management, and development in 14 major markets.
