Ferrovial, via its US construction subsidiary Webber, has been selected by the Georgia Department of Transportation for the upgrade of a section of the I-16/I-75 highway in the city of Macon in Georgia USA. The project, awarded to a joint venture with the company United Infrastructure Group, is valued at around USD 229 million. The project includes the widening and reconstruction of a stretch of more than 4.588 miles, the construction of 21 bridges, as well as the reconstruction of the I-16/I-75 interchanges. These works will improve the highway through the construction of wider shoulders, concrete barriers, and additional lanes along most of the section. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2024.
This contract is Webber’s second project in Georgia. Ferrovial’s U.S. Construction subsidiary is currently working on the rehabilitation of I-75/SR 401 in Clayton and Henry counties in Georgia. It has also recently been awarded the renovation and expansion of the FM 1960 highway in Houston for 70 million dollars, the improvement of IH 35 in Laredo for 115 million dollars and the reconstruction of the Texas highway in Dallas SL12 for 301 million dollars.
