Lubbock and Diboll: Transforming road infrastructure in Texas

We're developing two projects that aim to improve local mobility and safety in the Lone Star State. These developments also contribute to the broader objective of enhancing the state’s transportation network, ultimately benefiting residents and businesses alike.

We are  improving the transportation network in Texas through two major projects: the FM 1585 project in Lubbock and the US 59 Diboll Relief Route. Both projects, undertaken in collaboration with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), aim to enhance safety, mobility, and connectivity in their respective regions.

FM 1585 in Lubbock

FM 1585 project in Lubbock, part of the broader Loop 88 program, marks a pivotal development in the area’s infrastructure. This development involves transforming a two-lane rural road (FM 1585/130th Street) into a six-lane freeway complete with frontage roads, bridges, and ramps. This upgrade spans from Chicago Avenue to Avenue U and aims to support the region’s growing traffic demands while improving safety and reducing congestion.

 

The project encompasses two key phases: Phase 3A from Avenue U to Memphis Avenue and Phase 3B from Memphis to Chicago Avenue. The total cost for Phases 3A and 3B is estimated at $154.8 million. The project is the first of seven phases within Segment 3 of the Loop 88 corridor, extending from US 87 to US 62/82 in Wolfforth. 


 

US 59 Diboll Relief Route

In Diboll, Sacyr is undertaking the construction of a 13.2 km relief route for US 59. This project is designed to enhance safety and mobility along this critical corridor, with the overall aim of supporting the development of I-69 in Angelina County. 


 

The $142 million construction contract was awarded to Sacyr in April 2020, and the proposed improvements are designed to meet interstate standards for potential future designation as I-69.

 

This project addresses several critical needs:

  • Safety and Mobility: US 59 is a major freight corridor and part of the National Highway System, serving as a hurricane evacuation route and experiencing high traffic volumes and congestion.
  • Interstate Standards: Upgrading the route to meet current interstate standards will improve safety.
     

The project involves constructing new northbound and southbound main lanes for US 59, along with overpasses at FM 1818 and several local roadways.

This relief route will significantly improve traffic flow and reduce congestion in the Diboll area, providing a safer and more efficient route for local and through traffic.

The Pedemontana-Veneta toll road is one of the most important infrastructure projects in Italy. It is also one of the biggest projects in our portfolio there, with a planned investment of 2.6 billion euros. 
The company Superstrada Pedemontana Veneta is in charge of designing, building, financing, running, and maintaining the toll road for a period of 39 years following completion of construction. 
This project involved building 162 km of road. 94 km of the main road that will link 34 municipalities and the industrial area of Vicenza and Treviso. The remaining 68 km are for secondary access roads. This road will also include two tunnels - the Malo tunnel (6 km) and the S. Urbano tunnel (1.5 km) - and eight viaducts. 
The infrastructure guarantees the high demand for mobility in the most industrialized area of the Veneto region, with close to half a million companies and 4.9 million inhabitants.

Sustainable project

The highway’s environmental impact is minimal, given that 70% of the route runs through a trench or tunnel. It presents no visual disruption or noise, nor does it constitute a barrier since it is virtually invisible from preexisting roads, services, canals, and wildlife areas.

The project was designed and built using the latest innovations in safety, technology, and sustainability, including Sacyr’s Iohnic lighting system and sound-absorbing, antiaquaplaning, photocatalytic asphalt (which attracts contaminating particles and, in conjunction with light, oxidizes nitrates and carbonates).

In addition, the colors of the trench walls vary according to municipality, making it easier for drivers to orient themselves. Pedemontana has transparent noise barriers so as not to reduce the visibility or illumination of the platform.

Award-winning financing

The Pedemontana-Veneta toll road is part of the European TEN-T network. It is considered a nationally significant strategic asset on account of its location between the existing A4 and A27 toll roads, crossing the Veneto Region and passing through the provinces of Vicenza and Treviso. The construction of this toll road was financed by means of the largest bond issue in Europe for a greenfield project, to the tune of 1.571 billion euros. The issue has been awarded four international prizes.

Sustainable Energy Efficiency

The building will be powered by a 300,000-W solar electricity production facility (nominal power of the inverter), which will require 756 400-Wp solar panels on the roof, designed to dissipate heat in a faster, fully compact way. This installation will connect directly to the main low-voltage panel in order for the hospital to consume the energy generated.
