)-- U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR) today announced that its Redi-Mix, LLP operation in Dallas/Fort Worth has been selected by Trinity Infrastructure, LLC as the concrete supplier for a major section of the LBJ Express project in Dallas, Texas.
Redi-Mix will supply concrete for the western section of the project along Interstate 635 and Interstate 35, with an estimated 250,000 cubic yards of concrete and project revenue of approximately $20 million. U.S. Concrete’s phase will begin immediately and is expected to be completed by December 2014. Securing this project further solidifies U.S. Concrete’s position as a major material supplier to the heavy highway construction segment in north Texas.
The LBJ Express project is among the most innovative, comprehensive and complex roadways in development in the United States. The project will feature redevelopment and expansion of major traffic corridors that will help reduce travel delays, enhance safety, provide mobility choices and help reduce the carbon footprint often associated with idling traffic. The project will feature a multi-level highway system, including several miles of depressed lanes, allowing drivers the choice of bypassing congestion in general purpose lanes for new, high-speed managed lanes. In addition, the project will create thousands of new jobs in Texas and allow the state to leverage limited tax dollars to create more than $6 billion in roadway benefits.
