WHEREAS, the Company has established the Arcosa, Inc. 2018 Stock Option and Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), and which Plan is made a part hereof;

WHEREAS, the Board of Directors of the Company has determined that the Director be granted Restricted Stock Units subject to the terms of the Plan and the terms stated below, as hereinafter set forth;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the covenants and agreements herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:

Grant of Restricted Stock Units.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Plan, this Agreement and the restrictions set forth below, the Company hereby grants to the Director          Restricted Stock Units (the “Units”), and hereby credits such Units to a separate account maintained on the books of the Company. Each Unit shall be subject to conversion into one Share, as herein provided.

Vesting; Forfeiture.

The Units will become vested as follows: 100% of the Units on the first anniversary of the Date of Grant, or if earlier (i) upon death of the Director, (ii) upon the termination of the Director’s service for Disability (as defined in the Plan), or (iii) with the consent of the Board, in its sole discretion (such vested Units being referred to herein as, the “Vested Units”). Subject to Section 18 of the Plan, upon a Change in Control (as defined in the Plan), the vesting of the unvested Units shall not be accelerated, but rather the Units shall continue to vest in accordance with the schedule set forth above. All of the unvested Units shall be forfeited by the Director to the Company if, prior to vesting in accordance with this Section 3, the Director ceases to be a director of the Company (or otherwise terminates service with the Company) for any reason, which termination shall be evidenced by written notice from the Company or from the Director. Upon forfeiture, all of the Director’s rights with respect to the forfeited Units shall cease and terminate, without any further obligations on the part of the Company.

Stockholder Status.

The Director will have no rights as a stockholder (including, without limitation, the right to vote and to receive dividends) with respect to the Units covered by this Agreement until the issuance of Shares to the Director (in certificated or book-entry form) upon the conversion of the Units into Shares. The Director, by his or her execution of this Agreement, agrees to execute any documents requested by the Company in connection with the conversion of the Units. Except as otherwise provided in Sections 4 and 7 hereof, no adjustment shall be made for dividends or other rights for which the record date is prior to the issuance of such Shares.

Divided Equivalents.

The Company also grants to the Director a Dividend Equivalent Right with respect to the Units, whereby if on any date the Company shall pay any dividend or other distribution on Shares (other than a dividend in Shares), then with respect to each Unit, an amount equal to the amount of the dividend or distribution per Share shall be credited to the account of the Director maintained on the books of the Company (the “Dividend Equivalents”), and shall be paid to the Director (in cash or Shares, in the discretion of the Human Resources Committee (the “Committee”)) at the time Vested Units are converted in accordance with Section 5 below. If the underlying Units are forfeited, the Director shall have no right to the Dividend Equivalents related to such forfeited Units and shall forfeit such Dividend Equivalents as well.

Form and Timing of Payment.

Subject to the conditions hereinafter set forth, on or within sixty (60) days of the date of the Director’s “separation from service” (within the meaning of Section 409A of the Code), the Company shall convert the Vested Units into the number of whole Shares equal to the number of Vested Units, and shall deliver such Shares (plus any Dividend Equivalents credited to the Director) to the Director or the Director’s personal representative.

No Rights of Continued Service.
