Sacyr secures two new construction contracts in Florida, USA, valued at 110 million euros

  • The company, which started its activity in the U.S. in 2018, already has a construction project backlog valued at 940 million euros and a P3 project at the University of Idaho.

Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has secured two new contracts in the State of Florida, USA, for a total of 110 million euros: the construction of a 5.9 km section of the SR417 highway in Orlando (65 million euros) and the reconfiguration of the I-75 junction with the SR-72 in Sarasota County (45 million euros).

Sacyr will expand the SR 417 toll highway for the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX). The construction company will add a two-way lane, increasing from the current three to four lanes. Besides the expansion works to the median strip, it will also execute the milling and full-width repaving of the principal axis from Landstar Boulevard to Boggy Creek Road.

The project involves the extension of eight bridges on the highway’s principal axis that cross over three local roads (Rhode Island Woods Boulevard, Wyndham Lakes Boulevard y Boggy Creek Rd) and Boggy Creek river.

New junction

On the other hand, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) – District 1 has granted Sacyr the reconfiguration agreements for the junction of the I-75 with the SR-72 (Clark Road) in Sarasota County. A diverging diamond interchange with four two-way lanes will replace the current diamond interchange. To that end, Sacyr will extend a 1.5 km stretch of the SR-72 road by adding a two-way lane to the existing three and a bike lane on each roadway. The contract includes the construction of a lane specifically to connect ramps between both roadways.

The project also comprises the milling and paving of a 4.4 km section of the I-75 and constructing an auxiliary two-way lane from the junction with the SR-72 that leads north to the crossing under Proctor Rd. Sacyr will also execute dredging and signaling works, mark with beacons, and build anti-noise screens.

U.S. projects

Sacyr’s construction division entered the U.S. market in 2018, with several road construction contracts in Florida. The company currently manages two projects in Texas, and seven in Florida, which amount to a 940-million-euro backlog.

Furthermore, Sacyr Concesiones secured its first P3 project in the U.S. to manage and maintain the power and water utilities of the University of Idaho.

Expanding into the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, and Australia is one of Sacyr's goals in its 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.
