IRVING, Texas – Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR) announced today that its joint venture with Austin Bridge & Road – Lone Star Constructors, NEX – has broken ground on Phase 1 of the Interstate 35 (I-35) Northeast Expansion (NEX) South project in San Antonio, Texas, for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). Fluor was awarded the $700 million design-build project in the second quarter of 2023.

“Phase 1 of the I-35 NEX South project builds on Fluor’s more than two decades of work helping TxDOT improve safety and vehicular mobility across the state,” said Shawn West, President of Fluor’s Infrastructure business. “This project reinforces Fluor’s commitment to deliver quality infrastructure and supports economic development and commerce in Texas.”

The I-35 corridor is one of the most traveled interstates in Texas and serves more than 150,000 vehicles per day.

Phase 1 of the I-35 NEX South project includes the addition of three elevated lanes, including two mainlanes and one high-occupancy vehicle lane in each direction, from the I-35/I-410 South interchange to the I-35/I-410 North interchange along I-35.

Substantial completion is anticipated in early 2028.
