Mammoet's crew successfully set four precast box-girder bridge units into place as part of the construction of the "Signature Bridge" in Irving, Texas, for the Texas Department of Transportation and its general contractor Webber LLC.
Once complete, the bridge will stretch 500 ftl.
Webber LLC will deliver the Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT) $39.5 million Signature Bridge project, a 500-ft. long north-south structure that spans State Highway 114 in the city of Irving that will connect the old Texas Stadium, the former home of the Dallas Cowboys (south side) with a large development area – 78 acres – on the north side.
Webber, Ferrovial's construction subsidiary in the United States, has been selected by the Texas Department of Transportation for the reconstruction of 7.4 miles (12 km) of the SL 12 highway in Dallas. The contract is worth $301 million.
The project includes the reconstruction of existing Interchanges between State Loop 12, State Spur 482, State Highway 114 and 183.
In Austin, Texas, work continues on a $53.5 million project that will enhance safety for motorists, decrease wait times at intersections and reduce overall travel time. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is constructing improvements along Loop 1 (MoPac) near the Slaughter Lane and La Crosse Avenue intersections.
At a cost of $341 million, Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) crews are working on the largest project ever let in the Waco district. Construction on I-35 Waco North from 12th Street to N. Loop 340 began in May, and includes widening the mainlanes to four lanes in each direction and improving frontage roads and interchanges.
Webber LLC was the low bidder for the Texas Department of Transportation project on IH 35 in Comal County. The project was bid at $63.8 million and will be built in 25 months.
The project consists on the reconstruction of 6.2 mi. of IH 35 and its frontage roads on the north side of New Braunfels, Texas.
The first phase of construction is under way on a challenging project to turn an 8-mi. stretch of U.S. 281 in San Antonio from an often-congested highway to a speedier expressway. Crews will widen and build numerous improvements along the section that runs north and south through a fast-growing part of the city.
Work is proceeding on a $99.3 million Phase II Texas State Highway 249 extension project headed by Harris County Toll Road Authority. Crews will ultimately extend the highway from northern Harris County north through a portion of Montgomery County to Navasota in Grimes County south of College Station.
