Webber wins emergency bridge repair contract

Webber has been awarded a contract to carry out emergency repairs to a Texan bridge damaged by Hurricane Harvey.

The project, which was bid for US$7.5m, consists of the removal and reconstruction of three bents and four spans of the southbound IH 69 main lanes over the San Jacinto River. This emergency repair project was released by Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to correct an extensive amount of scouring around the piling, caused by flooding that undermined the stability of the bridge foundations.

The emergency repair project is expected to take about three months.

Webber president and CEO Tim Creson said: “Damages from Hurricane Harvey took a significant toll across the Houston metropolitan area; Webber helped TxDOT and HCTRA in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Harvey and we are happy to continue to serve our local community to help repair the long-term damage that was left behind as well.”
