Scope of Work

The ESS Team was committed to MoDOT and its goals for the I-70 Truck Climbing Lanes at Mineola Hill. As 100-percent, employee-owned companies, our team prioritized MoDOT’s needs and developed a winning approach that maximized their financial investment.

A third lane has been added to both East and westbound I-70 near mile marker 170 at Danville, providing commercial vehicles a chance to get out of higher speed traffic while going up the steep grade hill. Within the scope of work includes replacement of the overflow bridges on I-70 over the Loutre River. Over 2,700 square yards of structural concrete has been poured as well as just under 130,000 pounds of structural steel on the eastbound bridge. Working alongside our partners, ESS developed a competitive schedule which is allowing us to fast-track our anticipated completion date by over a month.
