Ferrovial, via its US construction subsidiary Webber, was awarded the reconstruction contract for a portion of three miles of the I-37 in San Patricio County, Texas (United States). The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) selected the company to carry out the contract valued at $84 million (about €69 million).
The scope of the works includes the direct connectors at the intersection of I-37 and US 77. Additional auxiliary lanes will increase the capacity of the road in of the event of a hurricane or other emergency evacuation. Major work activities include demolition and construction of bridges over the Nueces River, I-37 North and a frontage road overpass. The scope of work also includes upgrades to the existing main lanes. The project is scheduled to last about 65 months with construction anticipated to begin in September 2021.
“We are proud to have been selected to work with TxDOT on this vital project, which is located on one of the state’s hurricane evacuation routes,” said Jose Carlos Esteban, President & CEO of Webber. “These improvements will help keep the city of Corpus Christi moving safely and efficiently.”
