Spanish term or phrase: In
It is a document regarding the construction of a road and it seems to be a unit of measurement of hot mix asphalt.
This is the sentence it appears in:

34.983,32 ***In*** de mezclas bituminosas en caliente

Does anyone know what this unit of measurement would be translated to in English? Unfortunately, this seems impossible to search on google due to this letter combination appearing in thousands of words!

It is Spanish from Spain.

El ligante bituminoso se mide en toneladas (tn) realmente empleadas en obra, deduciendo la dotación a través de ensayos de extracción realizados a diario, o por pesada directa en báscula perfectamente contrastada.

La fabricación y puesta en obra de las mezclas bituminosas en caliente se mide por toneladas (tn) realmente fabricadas y puestas en obra, que se deducen de las secciones tipo indicadas en planos y de las densidades medias de las probetas extraídas en obra.

agree  Sergio Campo: I agree that this must be a typo, but watch out, these "toneladas" are metric tons (1000 kg), and the correct symbol for this unit of weight is just t (according to the SI). Known as tonne in the US
