Jones Branch Connector

The Jones Branch Connector over I-495 project in Fairfax County, Va., is not much to look at in terms of size—but its importance to the area is immense. The booming population in the Tysons area needs improved infrastructure, and the Jones Branch Connector—when complete in November 2019—will provide an important new link to S.R. 123 over the Capital Beltway (I-495). The road is expected to carry more than 32,000 vehicles per day by 2040. Crews are getting ready for an interim milestone due on Dec. 12, when at least one full lane of traffic in each direction will be open. The existing Jones Branch Connector is still waitiing to be widened to accommodate four total lanes of traffic, a center median, two 5-ft-wide bike lanes and two 12-ft-wide sidewalks through the entire corridor. The new bridge over the I-495 Express Lanes is complete.

Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway project in Phoenix

The I-10 portion of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway is just now starting to grace the Arizona deserts with its presence. The I-10 segment of the project is filled with flyovers, and most are still in the beginning stages of construction. Work on I-10 is expected to provide congestion relief for the 200,000 motorists who use the route on a daily basis. The South Mountain Freeway project is the largest in Arizona history. The public-private partnership is essentially nine projects in one, divided into five segments. When the 22-mile project is complete in late 2019, Connect 202 Partners will be responsible for maintaining the freeway for 30 years.

I-88 Reagan Memorial Tollway project—Oak Brook, Ill.

The Illinois Tollway is taking on the task of rebuilding and widening the I-88 Ronald Reagan Memorial Tollway between I-290 and York Road in the city of Oak Brook in the Chicago suburbs. The two-year project also includes rebuilding and widening the York Road Bridge, repairing and widening of the I-88 bridges over Roosevelt Road, improvements on the ramps connecting I-88 and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294), and noisewall construction adjacent to residential areas. Roads & Bridges visited the site in mid-July when crews were paving westbound lanes on I-88 about 100 yd from York Road. The hope is to have the current phase complete before Thanksgiving. Traffic will shift and work will begin on the eastbound lanes in early 2019.

Spanning Oakland and Macomb counties, just north of the city of Detroit, I-696 connects the major arteries of I-275 and I-94, and is itself a crucial corridor for the region, carrying an estimated 150,000 vehicles per day. The project limits run from the I-275 interchange in Oakland County to the I-94 interchange in Macomb County—a 28-mile section. The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) decided to organize the project with a full closure of one side of I-696 with a full managed detour route for westbound traffic. MDOT's goal is to be able to hand a new I-696 to its drivers by November.

Project Neon June 2018 update

Roads & Bridges visited the Project Neon site in Las Vegas in early June. At the time, prime contractor Kiewit was pushing to reopen I-15 to full capacity by the fall. By June, the project was 70% complete, and the signature flyover bridge connecting U.S. 95 and I-15 was 75% complete. The current Main Event phase involves Kiewit building 14 bridges, grading and paving new lanes on I-15, and building a number of on- and off-ramps. A total of six interchanges will be built during the course of Project Neon. In early June, only the Rancho interchange was complete—but after the Main Event phase, Kiewit will focus on perhaps the most important interchange that involves Charleston Boulevard.

CONEXPO-CON/AGG: Autodesk 3DR looks to revolutionize pre-project surveying and planning with autonomous UAV application

This past January, Autodesk, in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), tested autonomous UAVs at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. The seven flights that comprised this proof-of-concept trial represented the first civilian UAV flights approved by the FAA for a Class B airspace.

 

The purpose of these flights was to aid in the mapping plans for two new parking garages, as well as a relocating a public transit station, both of which are part of a $6 billion program for expansion and general improvement of the airport property.

 

The UAVs, or drones, which were programmed and flown by 3D Robotics measured the project area much faster than traditional measuring methods and have aided project planners in pushing their process forward.

 

Autodesk and 3D Robotics is on hand at the 2017 ConExpo-Con/Agg (in the Gold Hall) to display and discuss the 3DR Sightscan System, which was used in the Atlanta airport trial.

 

Roads & Bridges spoke with Autodesk Strategic Project Executive Tristan Randall and 3D Robotics’s Jeremiah Johnson about the proof-of-concept trial and what makes the 3DR such a unique system.

 

“This system,” Randall said, “is fully autonomous, so it do not require an active operator. The drone is programmed and then it follows its programmed course, and merely needs monitoring. It runs off an iPad app, and gathers data over GPS. This was the first Class B restricted airspace trail allowed by the FAA, and it was accomplished in only half a day, as opposed to the significantly larger period of time traditional methods would have taken.”

 

“Since we focused on pre-construction areas,” said Johnson, “and since the area was pre-programmed, there was no disruption of airport operations and there were no required closures of lanes. We worked with Atkins, the civil engineering consultant, to make it happen.”

 

Now that the proof-of-concept has been successful, Autodesk and 3D Robotics plan to move forward with further applications of the system, and to ultimately devise a digital repository for high-megapixel imagery.

East Chicago, Ind., is coated in industrialization, and those at the Cline Avenue Bridge construction site are just doing their part to fit in. Roads & Bridges magazine checked out the progress on the bridge, which when finished will carry two lanes of traffic in and out of East Chicago over railroad tracks and the Indiana Harbor Canal. A four-lane bridge previously served as a connector for over 30 years, but in 2008 it was demolished. When complete, the new Cline Avenue Bridge will be 6,236 ft long with 170- to 300-ft spans. The main span over the Indiana Harbor Canal will be about 316 ft. The project is supposed to be complete in 2020, and the bridge will be tolled and can be expanded in the future to accomodate growth.

In the Quad Cities region, a pair of dated structures, linking Moline, Ill. and Bettendorf, Iowa via I-74, have been carrying more than 75,000 vehicles per day, a figure that is expected to grow to 100,000 by the year 2035. In a joint effort, the Iowa and Illinois Departments of Transportation are in the process of erecting a new I-74 crossing adjacent to the old one that will offer more capacity and better travel times. In addition to the bridge itself, the project includes interchange ramp reconfigurations and local roadway improvements. Construction began in July 2017 and is anticipated to take place over 3.5 years.

Video: Illinois uses 3-D laser scanners

Several Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) districts have recently begun using a 3-D laser scanner in construction and surveying operations. IDOT began a research implementation project several years ago where the technology was a viable solution for IDOT crews. The implementation stage of the project is studying the benefits that a 3-D intersection provides in the area of worker safety. The technology provides a 3-D graphical image of the intersection. Eventually, the agency hopes that all IDOT districts will have a 3-D laser scanner to use for construction and design purposes.

I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project—Orlando, Fla.

The I-4 Ultimate Improvement Project is a P3 effort involving reconstruction and expansion of a 21-mile stretch of I-4 that moves into the heart of Orlando, Fla. Work on the project began in 2015, and the project limits run between Orange County and Seminole County. Due to the scope of the project, crews had to follow a strict traffic management and safety protocol policy in order to keep both traffic flowing during construction and minimize traffic- and work-related incidents. At the time of Roads & Bridges' visit to the I-4 worksite, the Grand National Drive Overpass was open to traffic and crews were preparing to close up the summer season.

VIDEO: Jane Byrne Interchange traffic management and operations update 2016

The Jane Byrne Interchange is the confluence of I-90, I-290, and Congress Parkway. With more than 400,000 vehicles traveling through the interchange daily and more than 900 crashes annually, it rates as one of the worst bottlenecks in the country. Among the project's major challenges has been maintaining a comprehensive traffic management plan amidst persistently heavy traffic.
