WCN Editorial Team 29 Sep 2022 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Webber, the US construction subsidiary of Ferrovial, has secured a contract to widen state highway 36 in Brazoria County, Texas.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDoT) chose Webber for this project.

The project is worth $113.6m.

Work on the contract is slated to commence in Q1 2023 and run until late 2025.

Webber will be responsible for widening a 7.3-mile stretch of road (about 11.7 km) to two lanes with a middle turn lane.

This work also consists of construction of seven bridges and upgrades to storm drains.

The project is part of the general improvements being undertaken by the department along the SH 36 corridor.

The SH 36 corridor serves the Port of Freeport on the Texas coast.

The road upgrade will enhance the carrying capacity of this hurricane evacuation route, while bolstering the mobility and safety for the area’s population.

With the latest contract, Webber is currently working on 53 projects in four US states - in Texas, Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina.

Recently, Webber secured a contract worth over €278m to expand a highway in North Carolina.

It also won a contract worth €332m to construct four highways in Texas – at Kaufman, Denton, Collin and Comal counties.

Webber, in partnership with Ferrovial Construction, is working on the I-35 project in San Antonio, worth $1.5bn.
