HomeOur experienceHighways

Our entry into the field of heavy civils construction dates back to the 1960’s in Spain when Dragados became a key partner in the expansion of Spain’s roadway infrastructure and toll highway network.

Dragados has constructed all types of road/highway projects around the world, has unmatched expertise in all project procurement models, and works on projects with design, construction, finance, operation and maintenance components. The list of projects completed around the world includes a large number of interstate highways, major interchanges and perimeter roads, as well as high-traffic roads in metropolitan areas that require strict traffic maintenance during construction.

With over 6,900 miles of road and highway projects completed around the world, Dragados S.A. has faced and overcome all type of technical challenges. This acquired knowledge and experience has given us the ability to quickly adapt to the special requirements of major signature projects and positioned the firm as a worldwide authority in the field of heavy civil construction.
