All of Cintra’s roadway projects generate significant local jobs and economic development opportunities. In Texas alone, our four projects have awarded more than 400 contracts, 98 percent of which have gone to local contractors. We pride ourselves on working with small businesses and local contractors to grow the economy.
At Cintra, we are proud of our track record working with Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBEs). Cintra’s projects in the North Texas area have exceeded expectations and the DBE goals for the LBJ Express and North Tarrant Express projects. The project teams have awarded contracts worth a total of approximately $500 million to more than 150 DBE firms. These contracts have not only provided several DBE firms the opportunity to work on a major highway project, but they have also allowed some key DBE firms to expand their capacity for future work on our projects or other highway projects.
