TxDOT U.S. 287 Project

​Fluor was awarded a Bid-Build contract for the construction of the Texas Department of Transportation's (TxDOT) U.S. 287 project in Ellis County, Texas.​


Client's Challenge

​The project will widen approximately 4.5 miles of U.S. 287 from two lanes to a four-lane divided asphalt highway with continuous frontage roads. The investment by TxDOT in the expansion of U.S. 287, a main arterial route in Ennis, is part of the overall development of Ellis County and will continue the commercial and industrial development of the area.​


Fluor's Solution

​The U.S. 287 project award allows Fluor the opportunity to bring its wealth of construction resources and knowledge to the Bid-Build market in Texas. Fluor's strategic self-perform platform was formed to execute projects like U.S. 287, bringing TxDOT a strong partner in the Bid-Build market and a robust platform to support the growing infrastructure needs in Texas.​
