About this Project
A portion of I-75 needed to be replaced due to unsafe pavement conditions caused by the unreliable ground under the existing pavement. Luckily, we were there to execute the project. This 8 million dollar project entailed a full pavement revamp for a section I-75 between 12th St. and Dixie Highway, located in Northern Kentucky. We also performed joint repair work on several bridges during the process. Repairs ranged from partial depth to full depth, and required the interstate to be reduced to two lanes for a temporary period of time. The team worked to complete diamond grinding & grooving, re-do the concrete overlay and surface texturing, as well as replace all pavement markers & repair the damaged median barrier. Images from our work on I-75 are below.
Before the project, I-75 at the cut in the hill was an unsafe area for vehicles to drive upon. As we cherrish the safety of our team, we also strive to ensure safe transportation for daily travelers. We needed to minimize land closure time as well. Our team worked efficently and effectivly, removing and replacing 1,600 yd3 of concrete each weekend. The team succesfully remediated the interstate with minimal delay to the public.
