Webber, a subsidiary of Ferrovial Agroman, has won a $119M contract to expand a segment of the I-45 highway in Texas, US.
The contract, awarded by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), will include the widening of an 11km stretch of the highway in Walker County, north of Houston, to six travel lanes.
It will also include the replacement of bridges, frontage roads and drainage structures.
Ferrovial believes that the project will alleviate congestion on the highway and enhance freight mobility in the area. More than 48,000 vehicles use the I-45 each day, according to figures by TxDOT.
Recently, Ferrovial has been awarded various projects in the US, including the contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the I-66 in Virginia, to upgrade the I-285/SR400 interchange in Atlanta, and to build a section of California’s high-speed railway network.
