Sterling Construction Company Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Texas Sterling Construction Co., was selected by the Texas Department of Transportation to reconstruct a 1.5-mi. portion of FM 51 near Springtown, Texas. The $23.4 million project entails the reconstruction of an asphalt roadway into a three-lane concrete roadway with shoulders, along with the reconstruction of a bridge and the installation of new drainage and other related infrastructure. The project is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2019 and is expected to be completed in late 2021.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling's CEO, said, "This project is a great example of how Sterling improves people's lives by reducing congestion while making the roads safer. It aligns well with our core competencies including concrete and bridge construction, as well as our mission to make roads as reliable and accessible as possible. As highways around the Dallas-Fort Worth area become increasingly overcrowded due to population growth, providing drivers with convenient alternate routes is paramount. Adding both lanes and shoulders to this stretch of FM 51 will not only decrease congestion, but will also help to promote better safety for motorists."
