Kingshighway Bridge Construction Gets New Owner — KingshighwaysBridgeConstruction —

Posted May 02, 2018 11:03:12The $12.5 billion Kingshighroad Bridge project will now be run by the city of Houston, not its developers, Mayor Sylvester Turner said.

The bridge is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, Turner said Monday.

“The new owners will be the Houston-based company,” Turner said during a news conference at the Houston Convention Center.

“They are responsible for the construction of the new bridge and the overall work on the new project.”

Turner said the new owners would have complete authority to build the bridge and oversee its operation.

The project was originally expected to start in 2018, but was pushed back until 2021, after several delays and design changes.
