Peter Kiewit Sons Co. Continues to Support Families While Investigation Continues

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2008) - Peter Kiewit Sons Co. continues to focus the majority of its efforts today on supporting the families of the employees who lost their lives in Sunday's plane crash. At this time, the names on the plane's manifest will not be released, at the request of the families. Kiewit appreciates the support of the media who have withheld name publication out of respect for the families, despite the fact they have been widely reported.

Operations on Kiewit's projects, with the exception of the Plutonic Power run-of-river hydroelectric site, have resumed normal site activities. Work at the Plutonic Power site will resume fully by tomorrow morning. Grief counselors will remain on site at the camp as long as they are needed.

The BC Coroner's Service is at the crash site today and has advised Kiewit that they will be expediting the recovery and return of the bodies to the families.

A further update is anticipated by the end of the day.
