Ferrovial, through its U.S. construction subsidiary, has been awarded the contract to improve a section of I-85 in Atlanta, Georgia, for USD 79 million (equivalent to approximately 71 million euros). The project reinforces its presence in the country, a strategic market for the company generating the largest volume of its income.
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has selected Ferrovial Construction for the project to design, build and improve the intersection of I-85 at SR 42/North Druid Hills Road, reducing crash frequency and traffic congestion. The scope of the work includes adding a displaced left-turn interchange, constructing a braided ramp, and replacing an aging bridge. Construction will begin in late 2023 and completion is expected by late November 2025.
The award reinforces Ferrovial Construction’s presence in Georgia, where it also currently manages the 285/400 highway improvement project in Atlanta, a project worth USD 450 million (equivalent to approximately 408 million euros). It has also carried out the improvement of I-16/I-75 in Bibb County, also in Georgia, for USD 228 million (equivalent to approximately 207 million euros), as well as the rehabilitation of the I-75 highway, located in Peach County. Ferrovial Construction has been present in the United States for more than 15 years and has built vital infrastructure such as the Managed Lanes in Dallas-Fort Worth and segments of the SH 99 Grand Parkway in Houston.
