Fluor and Balfour Beatty win $581m Texan toll road

29 May 15 A Fluor-led partnership with Balfour Beatty has won a US$581m (£379m) contract for the Bergstrom Expressway project in Austin, Texas.

Colorado River Constructors will design and reconstruct approximately 13km of US Highway 183. The project is expected to break ground next year, with construction set to continue into 2020.

Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority's Bergstrom Expressway project will add capacity to one of Austin’s most important arterial roads, which serves more than 60,000 vehicles a day. The project scope includes the design and construction of six tolled lanes - three in each direction - located in the median of US 183, upgrades to the general purpose lanes, five grade-separated interchanges, four new bridges, two new flyover ramps and the installation of intelligent traffic management systems.  

“The Fluor-Balfour joint venture is proud to have been selected for this contract continuing our 14-year relationship with Balfour in Texas,” said Terry Towle, president of Fluor’s infrastructure business. “We look forward to successfully delivering the project in partnership with the Mobility Authority.”
