ConDig (28-May-18). A subsidiary of Texas-based civil contractor Sterling Construction Co has landed a $33 million contract to revamp an eight mile stretch of Texas State Highway 34 near Kaufman, Texas.
Under the deal with Texas Department of Transportation, Texas Sterling Construction Co will upgrade of an existing two-lane roadway into a two-lane roadway with shoulders, which includes the demolition and replacement of five existing bridge structures.
Work on the project is slated to kick off in July, with completion targeted for the second quarter of 2022.
“This project award is a great example of the types of projects we target in the Texas heavy highway market as it aligns well with TSC’s core competencies including asphalt and bridge construction,” said Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s chief executive officer.
“This stretch of State Highway 34 is becoming increasingly more congested as nearby Dallas-Fort Worth continues to grow in population, so our efforts in adding shoulders and replacing bridges will provide commuters a safer roadway for years to come.”
In November, Sterling subsidiary Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction Company, LLC and a joint venture partner secured a $200-plus contract to upgrade Interstate 25 in Colorado.
