Sterling Construction Company, Inc. (NasdaqGS: STRL) (“Sterling” or the "Company”) today announced that its subsidiary Texas Sterling Construction Co.

The project is scheduled to begin in late August, and will be complete by April of 2020.
“As we’ve seen across multiple business lines, Dallas County and the surrounding Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex continues to grow at a historic pace,” stated Joe Cutillo, Sterling’s Chief Executive Officer. “This portion of Pleasant Run Road runs east-west from Lancaster, TX to Wilmer, TX, which represents a busy and important connector between several north-south running roadways, including I-35 and I-45. We are pleased to be part of this widening and improvement project as our efforts will not only alleviate traffic conditions, but will also improve the local water infrastructure with new storm drainage systems and gravity sewer lines.
