Sacyr wins a new construction contract in Florida (U.S.) worth 75.5 Million Euros29/06/2021
Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructures has won the expansion for an 8.7-km-long section of SR417 highway in Orlando (FL, U.S.) valued at 75.5 million euros
Sacyr will execute these 8.7-km-long expansion works on SR417 highway from the crossroads with Narcoossee Rd to the junction to SR528 highway.
The project includes adding a two-way lane, going from two to three two-way lanes. For that purpose, we will extend ten bridges of the road's main axis that cross over several local roads and a railway line. Furthermore, we will also build new anti-noise screens, retaining walls, ITS systems, and a new free-flow gate in one of the access ramps to the highway.
The construction division of Sacyr entered the U.S. market in 2018 with several road construction contracts in Florida. Today, the company executes two projects in Texas and six in Florida. In 2020, Sacyr Concesiones won its first P3 project contract in the U.S. to manage and maintain power and water utilities at the University of Idaho. The U.S. project backlog is worth more than 2,000 million euros.
To expand in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, and Australia is one of the objectives within Sacyr's 2021-2025 Strategic Plan.
