Keeping Lone-Star Travelers Moving: Granite Secures Highway Work in Texas

WATSONVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced today that is has been awarded two construction contracts worth approximately $107 million on State Highway 288 near Houston, Texas. When combined with the previously announced$40 million contract on a different segment of SH 288, the additional segments give Granite more than $145 million of work on SH 288. The contracts were awarded and will be funded by the Texas Department of Transportation. They are anticipated to be included in Granite’s third quarter CAP.

The scope of work includes construction of five new bridges, the reconstruction and reconfiguration of entry and exit ramps approaching the new structures, and new grade separations. Granite will set up a batch concrete plant to provide material for these projects.

Coming on the heels of the recent completion of the Grand Parkway Project, Granite teams are ready for a seamless transition to the work on SH 288. “The strong collaboration between our operating and estimating teams was critical to bid day success,” said Domingo Gonzalez, Granite project executive. “These adjacent projects are also a chance to continue our successful partnership with the local TxDOT teams on delivering the infrastructure that people need.”

The project start is expected in fall 2022 and anticipated completion is summer 2024.
