The Texas Department of Transport (TxDOT) has named Fluor and Balfour Beatty joint venture Pegasus Link Constructors as preferred bidder for its Horseshoe interstate highway connection project in Dallas.

The Horseshoe project includes connecting Interstates 30 and 35 in downtown Dallas as well as constructing two new bridges designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava.
Construction is due to begin next year. The project takes its name from the u-shape formed by the connection between the two highways.
