CHESHIRE, CT – , the U.S. subsidiary of Webuild Group, and the builders of a safer and more connected America, has been awarded a $96,000,000 contract for a bridge replacement job in Kershaw County, South Carolina.

Commissioned by the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT), the contract is for replacing the east and westbound bridges of I-20 over the Wateree River; one overflow bridge on eastbound I-20 and rehabilitating two additional overflow bridges (both east and westbound). All bridges were constructed in the 1970s and are at the end of their service life requiring a combination of replacement and repair. The project also includes improving the roadway approaches to meet current design standards for roadway safety.

It currently has over a billion dollars worth of active projects in the region: the $182 million I-85 Widening Phase III in South Carolina, and the following in North Carolina: the $403 million extension of NC-540 Triangle Expressway through Wake and Johnston Counties; the $288 million I-40/I-77 interchange in Iredell County; the $236 million road widening of I-40 in Orange County; and the $346 million contract to design and build improvements to the oldest section of I-440 in Wake County.
