WCN Editorial Team 9 Feb 2022 NORTH AMERICA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

Webber, the US construction subsidiary of Ferrovial, has secured a contract from the North Carolina Department of Transportation to construct a 5km section of the I-74 highway in Forsyth County, North Carolina.

The contract carries a value of $261.8m.

This is Webber’s first project in North Carolina.

Transport infrastructure developer Cintra is in charge of the I-77 Express Lanes that were constructed by Ferrovial.

Construction work is expected to commence this month and will take four years for completion.

The work also includes the construction of seven bridges besides other infrastructures.

This order forms part of a project launched by the state transportation department involving the construction of a multi-lane beltway to the north of the city of Winston-Salem, in Forsyth County.

This road project is expected to ease congestion while boosting safety and the region’s economy.

With the receipt of this contract, Webber is now working on 50 projects, in Texas, Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina.

Recently, Webber was chosen to construct two highways in Texas, in Guadalupe and Hays counties, for $161.5m.

The firm was selected to expand the I-35 in San Antonio (Texas) for $1.5bn in partnership with Ferrovial Construction.
