Sterling wins Texan highway contract

Texas Department of Transportation has appointed a local subsidiary of Stirling Construction to upgrade and expand the frontage roads along State Highway 73 near Winnie.

Texas Sterling Construction’s US$18.7m project consists of 2.5 miles of new subgrade and asphalt overlay, and the building of grade separation at the interchange between State Highway 73 and State Highway 124. The project is scheduled to begin in late summer and is expected to take 26 months to complete.

Sterling chief executive officer Joe Cutillo said: “This project award strengthens our backlog in the Texas region and fits within our core competency in asphalt work, frontage road replacement and grade separation construction. The interchange between State Highway 73 and State Highway 124 is notorious for being very dangerous, with many accidents taking place over the years. This project is in an area impacted substantially by Hurricane Harvey and we are pleased to be part of the efforts in building an overpass and reconfiguring the intersection that should assist in better traffic flow and improved safety in the area while still maintaining the existing right of way.”
