Start Date February 6, 2019
Anticipated Completion Date December 15, 2020
Scope of Work
Our ability to share regional resources, ESS teams were one step ahead, and will effectively replace 13 bridges and rehabilitate six (6) bridges that were built as part of the original I-44 construction in the 1960’s. Throughout the course of this project, we moved over 51,500 CY of dirt and paved almost 20,000 SY.
Due to the 63,000 vehicles that use the I-44 highway each day, it was imperative that we kept at least one lane of I-44 open in each direction at all times in order to keep traffic moving. Our crews were able to efficiently deliver on this promise by reducing the speed limit during temporary lane closures.
