THE WOODLANDS, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or “the
Company”) today announced that its subsidiary, Texas Sterling
Construction Co. (“TSC”) was selected by the Texas Department of
Transportation to reconstruct an eight mile portion of Texas State
Highway 34 near Kaufman, TX. The $33 million project entails the
reconstruction of an existing two-lane roadway into a new two-lane
roadway with shoulders and includes the demolition and replacement of
five existing bridge structures. The project is scheduled to commence in
July of 2019, with completion targeted for the second quarter of 2022.

Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s CEO, commented, “This project award is a great
example of the types of projects we target in the Texas heavy highway
market as it aligns well with TSC’s core competencies including asphalt
and bridge construction. This stretch of State Highway 34 is becoming
increasingly more congested as nearby Dallas-Fort Worth continues to
grow in population, so our efforts in adding shoulders and replacing
bridges will provide commuters a safer roadway for years to come.”

Sterling, a Delaware corporation, is a construction company that
specializes in heavy civil infrastructure construction and
infrastructure rehabilitation as well as residential construction
projects, primarily in Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Nevada,
Texas, Utah and other states in which there are feasible construction
opportunities. Heavy civil construction projects include highways,
roads, bridges, airfields, ports, light rail, water, wastewater and
storm drainage systems, foundations for multi-family homes, commercial
concrete projects and parking structures. Residential construction
projects include concrete foundations for single-family homes.
