Project OverviewDescripción del proyecto
The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) selected Emery Sapp & Sons (ESS) to complete all grading, excavating, and paving work on this $7.7 million roadway restoration project. After decades of serving as the main route through a high-traffic area of Springfield, MO, sections of I-44 began to deteriorate. ESS worked closely with MoDOT to ensure each deadline was met ahead of schedule.
Given the volume of work required on the Chestnut Expressway and I-44 mainline, this project was divided into two phases. During phase one, crews removed and replaced 4,700 SY of pavement in under 60 hours. This expedited weekend work prevented further closures and allowed traffic on the Chestnut Expressway to flow the following Monday morning.
Phase two included the replacement of the I-44 mainline and the Exit 84 ramps at Mulroy Rd. ESS and MoDOT partnered to create a cost-saving engineering proposal that allowed crews to replace 4,300’ of the I-44 mainline without disrupting traffic. This work made the pavement replacement more constructible, reducing the time and resources used.
In just under 7 months, ESS removed more than 35,000 CY of dirt and paved over 40,000 SY of concrete. This project was recognized for its outstanding work with a 2023 ACPA National Paving Award by the American Concrete Pavement Association.
