Sterling Construction Co. says that its subsidiary Myers & Sons Construction has been selected by the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans) for two California highway projects totaling $43.6 million.
The first project is a $55.1 million 50/50 joint venture project with FBD Vanguard Construction. This project is in Sacramento and involves the reconstruction and repair of a 20-mile stretch of highway from the San Joaquin County line to downtown Sacramento on Interstate 5.
Myers will replace almost 24,000 cu. yd. of existing concrete pavement with a combination of precast jointed concrete pavement and rapid set concrete slabs. The project is set to commence in January 2020 and is expected to be completed in 2021.
The second project is a $16.0 million development in Riverside. It entails the replacement of about 10,000 cubic yards of concrete slabs along a 9.5 mile stretch of Route 15 in Riverside County.
Additionally, Myers will complete 473 cubic yards of approach slabs for four bridges along this route. Myers is the primary contractor for the project that is scheduled to begin by the end of 2019, with a targeted completion date of summer 2021.
Sterling is engaged in heavy civil infrastructure construction and rehabilitation, construction site excavation and improvement, and residential construction projects, primarily across the southern United States, the Rocky Mountain states, California and Hawaii.
