Sterling Construction Company Inc. announced that its subsidiary, Texas Sterling Construction Co., was selected by the Texas Department of Transportation to reconstruct an 8-mi. portion of Texas State Highway 34 near Kaufman, Texas. The $33 million project entails the reconstruction of an existing two-lane roadway into a new two-lane roadway with shoulders and includes the demolition and replacement of five existing bridge structures. The project is scheduled to commence in July of 2019, with completion targeted for the second quarter of 2022.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling's CEO, said, "This project award is a great example of the types of projects we target in the Texas heavy highway market as it aligns well with TSC's core competencies including asphalt and bridge construction. This stretch of State Highway 34 is becoming increasingly more congested as nearby Dallas-Fort Worth continues to grow in population, so our efforts in adding shoulders and replacing bridges will provide commuters a safer roadway for years to come."
