Eurovia, a subsidiary of France’s Vinci Construction, has won two road contracts in the US worth $480m.
The design-and-build contracts will help develop two corridors in North Carolina. Eurovia’s work on Interstate 485 in Charlotte involves adding a 26km express toll lane in each direction as well as a free high-occupancy-vehicle lane.
The project aims to improve traffic conditions on the highway, which is used by 146,000 vehicles a day.
Eurovia has also won a contract in Winston-Salem in Forsyth County, including widening a 4km section of road to six lanes.
Work on both projects is due to be completed in 2022.
