The American construction company of the Ferrovial Group, Webber, has won nine construction projects in the USA in the past few weeks, specifically in Texas and Florida. The total budget amounts to 1 billion dollars (around 932 million euros), as the company announced this afternoon. Among the new works in the portfolio, his first major civil engineering project stands out in Florida, where Spanish contractors such as ACS and OHLA have a strong presence. The United States is Ferrovial’s big market in the infrastructure business. In this market there was a strong contract offensive by ACS itself this summer.
The aforementioned $79.9 million opening of Ferrovial in Florida consists of the rebuilding of one of the city of Jacksonville’s busiest road connections: the I-95 junction with US 1, also known as the Martin Luther King Parkway. Work is already underway and is scheduled for Spring 2025. Ferrovial has already had maintenance contracts on highways in Orange, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties and the Port of Miami Tunnel.
Aside from that East Coast passage, Webber’s biggest new contract is the $365 million IH-10 rebuild in Colorado County, Texas. The award was presented by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), which has entrusted eight projects to Webber. In the case of IH-10, work is scheduled to start in January 2024 and end in 2027.
Other notable works include the $245.2 million expansion of IG-10 in Guadalupe County for 4 miles and the $190 million reconstruction of US 59 in San Jacinto to create a Infrastructure with three main carriageways and two secondary roads and the replacement of 23 bridges.
Webber is one of Ferrovial’s spearheads in North America, a construction and infrastructure maintenance specialist. The Company is currently undertaking fifty construction projects and has 40 infrastructure maintenance contracts.
