ACS Wins $3.3 Billion Contract to Build Virginia Bridge-Tunnel

(Bloomberg) -- A joint venture led by Spanish construction company Actividades de Construccion y Servicios SA won a $3.3 billion contract to build a bridge-tunnel project in Virginia.

The Hampton Roads Connector Partners venture, 67 percent owned by ACS subsidiaries Dragados USA and Hochtief AG, will design and build improvements along 9 miles (14.5 kilometers) of the I-64 highway connecting Hampton and Norfolk, ACS said in a statement released Friday.

ACS and its partner, Vinci Construction Grands Projets, will build a 3.5 mile-long bridge-tunnel crossing and replace approach bridges between the islands and the shorelines.

The infrastructure project is the largest in Virginia’s history, ACS said.
