HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS:STRL) (“Sterling” or “the Company”) today announced that its Texas Sterling Construction Co. (“TSC”) subsidiary was the low bidder on a $65.3 million Texas Department of Transportation (“TxDOT”) project in the San Antonio, TX area. The project consists of the reconstruction of a six-mile section of I-10 from Foster Road to Graytown Road which will include concrete and blacktop paving, three new bridges, new retaining walls, the improvements to frontage roads and ramps and drainage improvements. Work is expected to commence in September 2016 and be completed by June 2019.
