On May 15, 2015, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and Lane-Abrams Joint Venture (DB Contractor) entered into a design-build contract (DBA) and associated comprehensive maintenance agreement (COMA) for the approximately $300 million SH 360 Project (the Project).
Pursuant to the DBA, DB Contractor will design and construct and potentially maintain approximately 9.7 miles of improvements to SH 360 consisting of two toll lanes in each direction from approximately Green Oaks Blvd/Kingswood Blvd to US 287, in addition to frontage road and intersection improvements. The Project also includes grade separation of the US 287 northbound and southbound main lanes with the SH 360 frontage roads. The Project includes additional potential option work, which would complete the ultimate improvements at nine cross streets along the project right of way. At TxDOT’s option, DB Contractor will perform comprehensive maintenance services under the COMA, including routine maintenance, capital maintenance and incident management, for up to three five-year terms after construction is complete.
Lane-Abrams JV was one of four proposers that submitted a Proposal for the Project. Lane-Abrams JV is a joint venture consisting of Lane Construction Corporation and J.D. Abrams. The major non-equity and other team members of the Lane-Abrams JV team include:
