Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has been awarded the reconstruction and expansion of the IH35E interstate highway in Texas (USA), with a budget amounting to 117 million dollars (102 million euros).
This is the first contract of Sacyr's construction subsidiary in the State of Texas. In 2018 the company entered the United States with the four contracts in Florida, totaling 320 million euros.
The project in Texas contributes to its expansion in the United States, which is one of the pillars of the 2015-2020 Strategic Plan.
Works on 11.5 kilometers
The contract of the IH35E has been awarded by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and has an execution period of 40 months.
Sacyr will rebuild and expand 11.5 kilometers of the IH35E, which will increase from four to six lanes from the intersection with the IH35W and the Ellis County boundary. Furthermore, the existing entrance and exit ramps will be improved at intersections with the FM2959 and the FM934.
The works include earthworks, drainage, earth walls, pavement, signaling, beaconing, safety, lighting and replanting.
