In California, OHL is working in the design and construction of the I-405 Improvement Project, the largest project acquired by the firm since starting operations in the USA. The project scope consists of 16 miles of roadway expansion, including the replacement and widening of 18 bridges over one of the most congested highways in the country. When completed, the project will considerably reduce the travel time through the corridor. OHL was also involved in the design, construction and financing of the SR 826/836 Project, the largest interchange project completed in the Miami area.    

Latin America

In Mexico, OHL' s flagship projects include the Mexiquense Beltway Phases I, II and III consisting of 110 km of highway construction connecting the most densely populated areas of central Mexico; the Northern Urban Toll Road - an 8.9 km long elevated urban viaduct; and the 23.5 km long Bicentennial Viaduct connecting Mexico City with the municipality of Cuautitlán Izcalli.  

In addition to these projects, OHL built 110 km long of Route 60, one of the most important transit corridors in Chile, integrated with the future Bioceanic Corridor, transit gateway for commercial ground transportation between Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay and with the Route 5, Santiago Los Vilos section, the main transit corridor between Santiago and northern Chile. Among the urban toll roads, the Américo Vespucio Western toll road stands out due to its particular double-height trench design. In Peru, OHL's flagship projects include the design and construction of 263.7 km of second road for the Red Vial 4 Toll Road, the 136 km long improvement and rehabilitation of sections IV and VII of the Ayacucho-Abancay highway, and the Andahuaylas-Huancabamba section of the Andahuaylas-Pampachiri-Negromayo highway. In Colombia, OHL's most notable projects are the construction of the Metroplus Itagüí line, the Phase of Parques del Río Medellín, the improvement of 27 km the Malaga-Los Curos corridor, the construction of the Quindío section to complete the Crossing of the Central Andes and part of one of the most important road infrastructures in the country, and the construction of El Rincón Avenue from Boyacá Avenue to Carrera 91.

In Europe OHL activity is focused in Spain. The firm has completed many remarkable projects including  the construction of the Lindín-Careira section integrated into the A-8 Cantabrian Motorway; the Fernández Casado viaduct at the Barrios de Luna reservoir - a previous world record holder for cable-stayed bridges with a concrete board - and the Arcos de Alconétar bridge over the Tajo river- also with a record of downed metal arches - both projects located at the Ruta de La Plata highway; and the Airport Corridor tunnels in Madrid - the safest in Europe according to the 2006 EuroTAP report.

Lastly, the urban tunnels of Kralvo Pole, in Brno (Czech Republic), and the twin tunnel under the Vistula River, in Gdanks (Poland), are two of the most important projects undertaken in Central Europe.
