The project

Calcasieu River bridge is our second P3 in this country, and one of our major projects by investment volume and business portfolio.

The Interstate 10 (I-10) P3 in Louisiana is a major road project that will substantially improve the connectivity between the cities of Lake Charles and West Lake, located in the southwest of the State, in the vicinity of the Texan border. This route is also a central connection between the coasts of Florida and California.

A 50% Sacyr-Acciona joint venture will be in charge of constructing the bridge.

Construction works are expected to begin in 2024 and the operation in 2031.

The widening of the I-10 comprises the construction of a six-lane corridor and the implementation of a free flow toll, as well as various structures, ramps and approaches to the bridge.


 

This solution will incentivize the local economy and become a growth driver for future generations, as it will reduce travel times and enhance road safety for more than 90,000 vehicles per day.
