Odebrecht United States won the right to build its first project in the U.S. state of Texas, together with its client Harris County Toll Road Authority: the expansion of the Sam Houston Tollway - Phase 2, between Route 59 and State Highway 288, located in the Southern region of Harris County, located in the city of Houston.
The project extends 6.4 km and includes two new lanes in both directions, for a total of eight. The expansion of the road will double its capacity and facilitate the flow of vehicles, improving regional mobility.
In addition to the expansion of the highway, the central lane of the tollway will be revitalized and will earn three automatic lanes – the Non-Stop/Easy Lane type – together with three conventional toll lanes. The on-way and off-way ramps will also be remodeled.
The construction work will start in January 2012 and should be concluded during the fourth quarter of 2013.
