Construction industry news : Texas Sterling Construction (TSC), a subsidiary of Sterling Construction has been awarded a $33 million contract from the Texas Department of Transportation for the reconstruction of an eight-mile portion of Texas State Highway 34 near Kaufman, southeast of Dallas.
As per the contract, Texas Sterling Construction will reconstruct an existing two-lane roadway into a new two-lane roadway with shoulders and will also undertake the demolition and replacement of five bridge structures. Work related to the contract is slated to start in July 2019 and is expected to be complete in Q2 2022.
Joe Cutillo – Sterling Construction CEO said: “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.
“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.”
