Ferrovial Awarded the Improvement of I-85 in Atlanta for $79M

ATLANTA, GA — Ferrovial, through its U.S. construction subsidiary, has been awarded the contract to improve a section of I-85 in Atlanta, Georgia, for $79 million. The project reinforces its presence in the country, a strategic market for the company generating the largest volume of its income.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has selected Ferrovial Construction for the project to design, build, and improve the intersection of I-85 at SR 42/North Druid Hills Road, reducing crash frequency and traffic congestion. The scope of the work includes adding a displaced left-turn interchange, constructing a braided ramp, and replacing an aging bridge. Construction will begin in late 2023 and completion is expected by late November 2025.

The award reinforces Ferrovial Construction’s presence in Georgia, where it also currently manages the 285/400 highway improvement project in Atlanta, a project worth $450 million. It has also carried out the improvement of I-16/I-75 in Bibb County, also in Georgia, for $228 million, as well as the rehabilitation of the I-75 highway, located in Peach County. Ferrovial Construction has been present in the United States for more than 15 years.
