A subsidiary of Spanish infrastructure company Ferrovial has been awarded a $192m contract by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to expand a 13km section of the US 281 highway in San Antonio.
American firm Webber will build four interchanges and three lanes in each direction for Loop 1604 in Bexar County in southern Texas.
They will also construct a direct connection to a park-and-ride facility with access to San Antonio’s public transport system.
Frontage roads will be built along with bicycle and pedestrian facilities.
Webber was recently awarded the expansion of I-45 in Walker County, north of Houston.
With more than 1.8 million residents, Bexar County is the fourth largest county in Texas and third most populous area in the state.

Can’t these guys build commuter rail lines, rather than more superhighways? Railways take up less space, are more energy-efficient and are a lot less unsightly.
