Archer/Granite/Lane JV Lands $1 Billion I-35E Contract in Texas

The Texas Department of Transportation last week selected AGL Constructors -- a combination of Archer Western Contractors, Granite Construction Co. and The Lane Construction Co. -- to tackle a $1 billion portion of reconstructing I-35E between Dallas and Denton.

Work on the private-public partnership contract, which entails building an extra general-use lane and reversible managed toll lanes, is expected to begin in the summer of 2013 and complete late in 2016.
