Webber, a US subsidiary of Ferrovial, has secured an $81m reconstruction contract from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT).

The contract is for the reconstruction of a section of interstate 35 (I-35) highway in San Marcos, Texas.

Webber will be responsible for the reconstruction of 2.5 miles of interstate along with new auxiliary lanes.

The contract scope also includes the demolition and construction of bridges over SH 123, the Blanco River, and Willow Creek.

Additionally, Webber will upgrade the frontage roads and SH 123 intersection.

Overall, the project involves the construction and demolition of five bridges and extensive sewer and electrical improvements.

Works at the site are slated to begin in September this year and the project will take 42 months to complete.

I-35 is considered one of the busiest trade corridors in the US, which is used by the local residents and businesses for their daily needs.

Spanning nearly 550 miles across Texas from the Mexican border to the Oklahoma state line, the existing I-35 corridor is the largest highway that connects Mexico and Canada through the US heartland.

Currently, Webber is working on more than 40 projects in Texas and Georgia.

Last month, TxDOT awarded a $1.5bn design-build project in San Antonio to Ferrovial’s subsidiaries Ferrovial Construction and Webber.

The Interstate 35 (I-35) Northeast Expansion (NEX) project will involve designing, building, and maintaining almost 9.5 miles of non-tolled improvements along the I-35, including building around 18 miles of elevated main roads.

The project’s scope covers the construction of elevated managed lanes between the existing main lanes and frontage roads, as well as eight bridges.

The firms will also be responsible for rebuilding and widening the Loop 1604 general-purpose lanes and bridges.
