THE WOODLANDS, TX – November 26, 2019 – Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or “the Company”) today announced that its subsidiary, Texas Sterling Construction Co. (“TSC”) was selected by the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority to reconstruct Talley Road from an existing two-lane roadway to a four-lane urban roadway consisting of an 11-foot lane and a 14-foot lane in each direction with curb and sidewalk. Along with the road reconstruction, the work will include bridge construction, drainage improvements, traffic signal installation and other operational improvements. The project has a targeted completion date of February 2022.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s CEO, commented, “This is a project we are very excited about. According to a study by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute Talley Road was one of the twenty most congested roads in San Antonio in 2018, costing commuters valuable time and money. Not only is this a great opportunity to aid the San Antonio community, but this project also aligns very well with our core business capabilities. Adding two new lanes and additional sidewalks to Talley Road will not only allow for safer conditions for motorists, but will also reduce congestion by a wide margin.”
