Autopistas de Puerto Rico S.E. (English: Puerto Rico Expressways) is a European public–private partnership, privately held company that operates the Teodoro Moscoso Bridge on behalf of the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority. The company is wholly owned by Abertis.[1]

History[edit]

Autopistas de Puerto Rico S.E. was founded by Dragados y Construcciones S.A. of Spain with 74.25% stake, Supra and Company S.E. with 20% share, Rexach Construction Company with 4.75% interest and Autopistas Corporation (English: Expressways Corporation) with 1% interest. In 1998 Valor 2000 S.A. of Spain bought Dragados' share, who in turn sold their shares to Aurea Concesiones de Infraestructura de España in 2001. In 2003, Abertis bought Aurea out, and then, in 2010, acquired the remaining 24.75% shares owned by the other two founding members.[1] The remaining 1% is owned by Autopistas Corporation, a shell company based in Puerto Rico which is also owned by Abertis.
