THE WOODLANDS, TX – April 17, 2018 – Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or the "Company”) today announced that its subsidiary Texas Sterling Construction Co. (“TSC”) was selected by the Texas Department of Transportation to reconstruct and widen a portion of Interstate 10 and its frontage roads near Boerne, TX. The $60.2 million project consists of 6.2 miles of new asphalt pavement, and the construction of bridge structures at South Main Street and West Bandera Road. Associated drainage, electrical and signage work along Interstate 10 will also be included. This particular project will require over 140,000 cubic yards of excavation and over 230,000 cubic yards of embankment for the walls and bridges as well as over 220,000 tons of asphalt paving. The project is scheduled to begin in early June, and is expected to take 30 months to complete.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The demands of this project align nicely with our core skills in the Texas market and is a great add to our overall backlog. TSC was selected for this project due, in part, to its versatility including asphalt work, ramp reconfiguration, and bridge construction. This stretch of Interstate 10 near Boerne, Texas is known for traffic congestion, so our efforts in improving ramp and frontage road traffic will help alleviate this problem going forward.”
