Jury Trial Set In Austin Over SH 130 Pavement Cracks

A jury trial is set to begin in Austin on Aug. 31 to determine the cause of extensive cracking in the asphalt pavement placed by a design-build joint venture of Ferrovial Agroman and Zachry American for the SH 130 segments 5 and 6 toll concession south of Austin.

Their equal joint venture, Central Texas Highway Constructors (CTHC), has sued its builders risk insurer Lexington Insurance Co., of Boston, for damages CTHC claims were caused by drought.

Construction started late in 2008 under a $968 million design-build contract. Repairs began in early 2012, well before substantial completion in October 2012 and are continuing.
