Spain’s Ferrovial, through its US subsidiary Webber, has been selected by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) to build a 5km section of the I-74 highway in Forsyth County for $261.8m.
The project is Webber’s first in North Carolina.
Work is expected to begin in February and to take four years to complete; it includes the construction of seven bridges and other elements.
The contract is part of a project launched by NCDOT to build a multi-lane beltway to the north of the city of Winston-Salem to reduce congestion and improve safety on a busy route.
With this contract, Webber is working on 50 projects in Texas, Georgia, Virginia and North Carolina.
Webber recently announced that it had been selected to build two highways in Texas, in Guadalupe and Hays counties, for $161.5m, and to expand the I-35 in San Antonio, Texas for $1.5bn in partnership with Ferrovial Construction.
