Webber, a US construction subsidiary of Ferrovial, has won a contract to broaden an eight miles portion of the I-95 in North Carolina.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation has selected the company for the $282.9m (€278m) project.

The company will be responsible for boosting road capacity by widening the existing four to eight lanes, replacing bridges and overpasses as well as improving drains.

The project is planned to finish in late 2026.

It is expected to enhance road safety, lessen congestion, and offer more reliable transit times.

This contract marks Webber’s second in North Carolina, besides the activities of the company’s other divisions.

In February, Webber secured the first project in North Carolina.

This contract was also awarded by the North Carolina Department of Transportation for construction of a 5km section of the I-74 highway in Forsyth County.

The contract was valued at $261.8m.

Webber is presently working on 52 civil engineering projects in Texas, Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina.

Earlier in July the Texas Department of Transportation selected Webber to expand four highways in Texas.

The contract was worth a total of $340m.

According to the terms of the contract, Webber will undertake highway projects in Kaufman, Denton, Collin and Comal counties.

These projects are scheduled to start late 2022 and finish in 2025.
