The LSI consortium was composed Fluor, Balfour Beatty Construction, and T. J. Lambrecht Construction. The preliminary design for the corridor included either two or three lanes of travel in each direction. The alignment and proposed median width were designed to accommodate future transportation needs such as general multipurpose lanes, high occupancy vehicle (HOV) facilities, and light rail transit.
SH 130 was the first state highway project in Texas built under an Exclusive Development Agreement (EDA) that allowed the state to hire one consortium to perform all the work on a project.
