Great Lakes Engineering Group was awarded the opportunity to work alongside MDOT on their I-275 Concrete Inlay project as part of an As-Needed service through the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Taylor TSC. This project required the full shutdown of I-275, one direction at a time, in order to accommodate the replacement or repair of over 88 lane miles of pavement as well as rehabilitation work on 16 Bridges from 5 Mile Road north through and including the interchange with I-96/M-5/I-696. The concrete inlay replaced the concrete pavement between the shoulders for nearly the full length of the roadway, with concrete patches and an asphalt overlay on the shoulders. In areas underneath existing structures, the roadway was fully removed and reconstructed to maintain minimum under clearances.
Our GLEG team provided a wide range of services on this project from roadway inspection of removals, concrete pavement, concrete patches, hot mix asphalt placement, guardrail and right of way fence installation, to bridge inspection of structural steel repairs, heat straightening, hydro-demolition, concrete overlays, and epoxy overlays. Our team provided office technician services along with ombudsman services where we responded to over 1400 phone calls and emails during the shutdown period of the project, as well as providing engineering assistance on the project including production rate tracking, project photography, and recording for the pavement historical database.
Although this contract was part of an “As-Needed” service, our GLEG team is familiar with a multitude of contracting and project delivery methods and is always willing to do whatever it takes to best accommodate the changing needs of our clients.
