The building materials giant is supplying more than 100,000 short tonnes of cement and more than 200,000 cubic yards of structural and paving ready-mix concrete for the Grand Parkway’s H, I-1, and I-2 segments.

Cemex is also operating a portable central mix plant to give crews with joint-venture contractor GPI a nearby location to directly access concrete for more than 50 miles of highway.

Scott Ducoff, Cemex USA regional president – Texas region, says: “Cemex USA is proud to be part of an iconic infrastructure project in our headquarters city of Houston and one that will help ease traffic and improve local travel for commuters.”

Cemex says the Houston metro area is home to over seven million people, and transportation infrastructure is key to improving their quality of life and building a more resilient and sustainable city.
