Ferrovial Awarded Five Infrastructure Projects in Texas

HOUSTON, TX — Ferrovial announces, through its construction subsidiary Webber, that it was awarded two contracts from the Texas Department of Transportation, and PLW Waterworks was awarded three Texas water and wastewater treatment facility projects.

Ferrovial acquired Houston-based construction company Webber in 2005. Over the past 20 years, the company has grown to improve roads, bridges, and water infrastructure across more than 10 states in the U.S.

The Texas Department of Transportation awarded the company two projects that will improve the safety of roadways with a high volume of freight traffic and heavy vehicles.

  • IH 27 in Randall County, $312.5 million: The project extends 6.9 miles, adding an additional lane to IH 27 in Randall County. Upon completion, it will help support the increased freight traffic in the “Ports to Plains” corridor between Laredo, Texas, and Denver, Colorado.
  • S. Highway (US) 60 Parmer County in Friona, $69.9 million: The 5.3-mile-long project involves constructing acceleration and deceleration lanes, a bridge deck, and MSE walls. This project will allow a safer entry to US 60 for the high volume of industrial and heavy vehicles that operate in the area.

Also in Texas, the company’s waterworks division, PLW Waterworks, was awarded several contracts to improve capacity and operational efficiency of water and wastewater treatment facilities.

  • Walnut Branch Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Geronimo Creek WWTP, $178 million: One of the largest waterworks construction projects in Texas, the scope of work consists of deconstructing and decommissioning the Walnut Branch WWTP and expanding the Geronimo Creek WWTP in Seguin. Construction of the Geronimo Creek WWTP includes converting it to produce a 12 million gallon per day (MGD) average daily flow, allowing the city to treat the sewer water within the city limits for years to come.
  • Paul Phillips Water Purification Plant, estimated $90 million: This Construction Manager at Risk (CMAR) project consists of the expansion of the Dr. Paul Phillips Water Purification Plant from 12 MGD to 18 MGD for the City of Weatherford.
  • South Water Treatment Plant Expansion, estimated $58 million: In Tomball, this CMAR project will expand the treatment plant from 1.5 MGD to 3 MGD and replace the current treatment method with the more effective process of an aeration basin system.
