THE WOODLANDS, TX – February 28, 2018 – Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or the "Company”) today announced that its Texas Sterling Construction Co. (“TSC”) subsidiary was selected by the City of Coppell to reconstruct the Freeport Parkway in Coppell, TX. The $15.8 million project is a 1.2 mile long stretch that adjoins Interstate 635. The major improvements consist of replacing all exiting pavement, water and wastewater infrastructure as well as replacing the existing 300 foot bridge over Grapevine Creek. Work on the Freeport Parkway is scheduled to begin during the spring of 2018, and is expected to take 18 months to complete.
Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The reconstruction of the Freeport Parkway demonstrates the versatility that our TSC business provides including concrete work, water infrastructure improvement, and bridge construction. In addition, our bid was slightly under the second Bidder, which is indicative of our disciplined approach at the bid table. We are excited to be part of a project in a growing suburb of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex that will ultimately improve drainage and sewer lines and traffic flow for motorists.”
