Work began a year ago on the $1.1 billion project to extend the Grand Parkway toll road in Texas. Since then, 1,000 of the required 4,000 concrete support beams for the ramps and bridges for this 38-mile project have been put in place. Zachry-Odebrecht Parkway Builders has broken the design-build project into smaller work zones and expects the project to be completed next year.
