Ferrovial Services wins two Transport contracts in Florida
The Florida Department of Transportation awarded its Nassau and Clay asset maintenance contracts to Ferrovial Services in North America. Both seven-year contracts started on 30 June 2019.
The Clay Project includes asset maintenance of structures, facilities and approximately 185 kilometres in the Jacksonville, Florida metropolitan area.
The Nassau Project includes asset maintenance of structures, facilities and approximately 160 kilometres of state roadway in Nassau County. This contract also includes maintenance of Callahan Maintenance Yard, US 17 and US 1, Wayside Parks, Shave Bridge Service Roads, Egan’s Creek and Jasmine Street Tide Gates.
The Nassau Project is unique in that Ferrovial Services is charged with the routine maintenance and proper operation of two tidal gates that limit the amount of saltwater intrusion into the interior brackish bays of Amelia Island. This responsibility is essential to the wellbeing of the natural flora on the island, as too much saltwater intrusion can deter normal plant growth and eventually kill the plants.
Ferrovial Services’ presence in Florida
Ferrovial Services recently won two new highway maintenance contracts and one contract renewal in Florida. As a result, Ferrovial Services has contracts in seven of Florida’s eight districts, covering more than 11,000 lane kilometres and over 1,000 bridges.
