Astaldi announces it has been awarded the US$ 108 million contract to build a section of the Wekiva Parkway in Florida (United States).

The new contract calls for building 8 kilometres of a new motorway along the State Road 429 – State Road 46 (Wekiva Parkway, Section 7A), including 12 bridges and all the related works. The works have an expected duration of just over 5 years, with start-up beginning in the first quarter of 2018.

The Customer is the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT – District 5), the American government agency charged with developing the transport infrastructure system in the State of Florida. The works will be financed with FDOT funds. The works will be performed by Astaldi Construction Corporation (ACC), an Astaldi Group investee devoted to developing the American market.

The Astaldi Group has been in the United States for about 30 years, through its investee ACC, which operates mainly in states on the East Coast (Florida) and the West Coast (California). The most important contract underway is the US$ 1.2 billion project for widening and modernisation of 22 kilometres of Interstate 405 in California, one of the most complex jobs currently being done in the country.

The United States is one of the areas of greatest interest for the Group’s planned growth in the years to come, and this new contract marks a major success for Astaldi and for consolidating its presence there.
