THE WOODLANDS, TX – November 10, 2020 – Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or “the Company”) today announced that its subsidiary, Road and Highway Builders, LLC (“RHB”) was selected by the Nevada Department of Transportation to perform asphalt reconstruction on two separate portions of U.S. Route 95 in Nevada.
The first project, worth $17.1 million, involves the re-construction of 22 miles of asphalt on U.S Route 95 North near Beatty, Nevada. The second project, worth approximately $18.0 million involves the re-construction of 25 miles of asphalt on Route 95 from Fallon, Nevada to Schurz, Nevada. The projects are scheduled to begin mid-October and are scheduled to be completed by the second quarter of 2021.
“U.S. Route 95 in Western Nevada is an important link between the population and tourism centers of Reno and Las Vegas,” stated Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s CEO. “Stretches of this highway sustained damage during recent earthquakes in the area making reconstruction work all the more important to restoring safe road conditions for motorists. We are pleased to once again be working with the Nevada Department of Transportation on another important highway project. These are two great projects for keeping our RHB operation’s utilization high during the winter months and fit well with our core competencies and equipment strengths.”
