ConDig (26-Nov-19). A subsidiary of Texas-based civil contractor Sterling Construction Co has landed two highway revamp projects in California worth a total of $43.6 million.
Under the first deal with the California Department of Transportation, Myers & Sons Construction will carry out the reconstruction and repair of a twenty mile stretch of highway from the San Joaquin County line to downtown Sacramento on Interstate 5.
Myers will replace almost 24,000 cubic yards of existing concrete pavement with a combination of precast jointed concrete pavement and rapid set concrete slabs.
The project is slated to start in January next year and is expected to be completed in 2021.
It is a $55.1 million 50/50 joint venture project with FBD Vanguard Construction, Inc., of which Myers backlog and revenues will be about $27.6 million, the company said.
The second deal is a $16 million project in Riverside and features the replacement of about 10,000 cubic yards of concrete slabs along a 9.5 mile stretch of Route 15 in Riverside County, CA.
Myers will also complete 473 cubic yards of approach slabs for four bridges along this route. Myers is the primary contractor on the project that is set to kick off by the end of this year, with a targeted completion date of summer 2021.
“Our Myers operation continues to have a strong presence in the California heavy highway construction market, and these projects fit well within our core competencies of bridge construction and concrete work. With respect to the Sacramento award, this is the largest infrastructure project the City has undergone in nearly 45 years,” said Sterling ceo Joe Cutillo.
In August, Sterling announced that it was set to acquire Austell, Georgia-based specialty contractor Plateau Excavation, Inc in a deal worth $400 million.
