ConDig (27-Nov-19). A subsidiary of Texas-based civil contractor Sterling Construction Co has landed a $22 million deal to revamp and expand a roadway in San Antonio, Texas.
Under the deal with Alamo Regional Mobility Authority, Texas Sterling Construction Co will reconstruct Talley Road from an existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane urban roadway consisting of an 11-foot lane and a 14-foot lane in each direction with curb and sidewalk.
The project will also include bridge construction, drainage improvements, traffic signal installation and other operational improvements.
Work on the project has been slated for completion by February 2022.
“This is a project we are very excited about. According to a study by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute Talley Road was one of the twenty most congested roads in San Antonio in 2018, costing commuters valuable time and money,” said Sterling ceo Joe Cutillo.
“Not only is this a great opportunity to aid the San Antonio community, but this project also aligns very well with our core business capabilities. Adding two new lanes and additional sidewalks to Talley Road will not only allow for safer conditions for motorists, but will also reduce congestion by a wide margin.”
It follows an announcement by Sterling earlier this week that its subsidiary Myers & Sons Construction bagged two highway revamp projects in California worth a total of $43.6 million.
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.
