Pictured is Indiana State Road 66 at Green River Road in Evansville, Ind. This interchange modification project was designed to reduce traffic congestion. The project consisted of reconstructing the existing urban diamond interchange to provide a single point urban interchange at SR 66 and Green River Road. The construction included raising the grade of the SR 66 roadway approximately 3 feet, partial reconstruction and widening of the existing ramps, constructing a new 3 span bridge, vertical extension of the existing Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls (MSE Walls), and constructing additional turn lanes on Green River Road. The bridge structure carrying SR 66 over Green River Road is approximately 318 feet long and utilizes post tensioning to reduce construction depth. The interior supports consist of integral post-tensioned concrete straddle bents.
