The project, valued at $58.8 million, will take place in Corsicana Texas, which is 55 miles south of Dallas. Construction crews will widen approximately 8 miles of four-lane Interstate 45 into six lanes. In addition, the project requires that three new bridges be built and seven existing bridges be widened.
The project is scheduled to begin in November and be finished by January 2017.
“The Corsicana I-45 project is a high-profile project that will deliver major improvements to a critical transportation artery in the Dallas area,” Mark Buchanan, president of Sterling’s Texas subsidiary, said. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to leverage the resources, knowledge and experience of our enhanced Texas Sterling team in the performance of our core expertise. Our project managers and construction crews are committed to the safe and profitable execution of this compelling job, and we look forward to partnering with TxDOT in its timely completion.”
