On May 17, 2013, the Texas Department of Transportation and AGL Constructors reached commercial close on the design-build and capital maintenance agreements for the I-35E Managed Lanes Project. AGL Constructors is a joint venture comprised of Archer Western Contractors, LLC, Granite Construction Company and The LANE Construction Company. AGL Constructors was conditionally awarded the contract in December 2012, and was one of four teams the Texas Department of Transportation shortlisted for the project in early 2012.
The I-35E Managed Lanes Project is the first phase in a multi-phase program to relieve traffic congestion along an existing 28-mile corridor of I-35E in Dallas and Denton Counties. The scope of the $845 million design-build contract includes the design and construction of tolled managed lanes, general purpose lanes, collector-distributor roads and bridges. The scope of the capital maintenance agreement includes the optional long-term maintenance of the project’s managed lanes component. The capital maintenance agreement consists of up to three optional five year terms.
