Webber, a US subsidiary of Spanish infrastructure group Ferrovial, has won a project worth approximately $15m from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) for the improvement of the I-75/SR 401 in Clayton and Henry Counties of Georgia, the US.

Under the contract, the company will work on around 6.1 miles of concrete and shoulder rehabilitation along I-75.

Work includes adding 5,300t of graded aggregate base, 20,000t of asphalt, 373,000 square yards of concrete grinding, and approximately 29,000 square yards of full depth concrete paving replacement.

The project spans from south of Walt Stephens Road and extends to south of State Road 54.

The project is scheduled to commence later this year and is expected to be finalised mid-next year. Work will last approximately ten months.

Webber Heavy Civil Division president Josh Goyne said: “This is Webber’s first hard bid win with GDOT. We are excited to expand Webber’s presence in Atlanta while helping to building economic opportunities for the community.”

Last year, Webber established a regional office in Atlanta and is presently working with Ferrovial Construction’s North Perimeter Contractors on the I-285/SR 400 Interchange Reconstruction Project.

Earlier this month, Webber secured a $115m highway upgrade contract from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) in the US.

Under the contract, Webber will be responsible for upgrading the IH 35 in Laredo, Texas.

The project includes the construction of a new direct connector spanning 1.5 miles, more than 400,000ft of bridge deck, and new main travel lanes to IH 35 in each direction.
