This 4-lane interstate highway in western Indiana carries approximately 36,000 vehicles per day, of which nearly 40% are trucks, making maintenance of traffic critical.
In mid-June of 2011, Lochmueller Group (Lochgroup) staffed a fast-track rehabilitation of approximately 46 miles from SR 59 to SR 267. Improvements consisted of partial pavement replacements, concrete joint replacement, sub-surface drain installation, concrete and HMA patching, shoulder strengthening, and retrofitting under-drains. One lane of traffic in each direction remained open throughout the work.
To meet the accelerated schedule, Lochgroup staffed the project around the clock. The project engineers provided leadership for the team and helped set a professional tone of the worksite that helped accomplish this large project in three months.
