Ferrovial subsidiary Webber has won nine road projects in Texas and Florida together worth more than $1bn.

One of the nine is in Florida, to reconstruct one of the busiest interchanges in Jacksonville – where the I-95 meets the US 1.

This $79.9m project is the company’s first big heavy civil project in the state. It’s expected to finish it in spring 2025.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) awarded Webber the other eight projects.
