ConDig (18-Apr-18). A subsidiary of Texas-based civil contractor Sterling Construction Co has secured a $60.2 million contract to revamp and widen a section of Interstate 10 and its frontage roads near Boerne, Texas.
Under the deal with the Texas Department of Transportation, Sterling said the project features 6.2 miles of new asphalt pavement and the construction of bridge structures at South Main Street and West Bandera Road.
It will also include associated drainage, electrical and signage work. It will require over 140,000 cubic yards of excavation and over 230,000 cubic yards of embankment for the walls and bridges as well as over 220,000 tons of asphalt paving.
The project is slated to begin in early June and is expected to take 30 months to complete, according to the company.
“The demands of this project align nicely with our core skills in the Texas market and is a great add to our overall backlog. TSC was selected for this project due, in part, to its versatility including asphalt work, ramp reconfiguration, and bridge construction,” said Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s chief executive officer.
“This stretch of Interstate 10 near Boerne, Texas is known for traffic congestion, so our efforts in improving ramp and frontage road traffic will help alleviate this problem going forward.”
Last month, an affiliate of Sterling Construction Co has bagged a $30 million deal to revamp a water treatment plant in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
