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.

I-696 reconstruction and repair, Macomb and Oakland counties, Mich.

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.

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.

The $107 million reconstruction of the U.S. 12 / 14 Beltline and Verona Road in Madison, Wis., was named Roads & Bridges' #1 Road project of 2017. The project included complete reconstruction of the interchange at USH 12 / 14 / 18 / 151 from a standard diamond interchange to a single-point urban interchange (SPUI). The other significant alteration to the corridor was the installation of a roundabout at the intersection of Verona Road and Summit Road. Stage 2 of the overall Verona Road Improvement project is presently underway, with work scheduled through 2020.

Traversing the intersection of I-94 and I-41, the Zoo Interchange in Milwaukee, Wisc., is the highest volume interchange in the state, withstanding more than 350,000 vehicles per day. The reconstruction of the interchange is tagged at an overall cost of $1.7 billion. Due to its massive scale, the project schedule was let in phases, or cores, by which the Wisconsin Department of Transportation could manage the scale of things while keeping the interchange viable during construction.

Roads & Bridges paid a visit in late January to the Project Neon site in Las Vegas, the largest public works project in Nevada history. The goal of the project is to widen 3.7 miles of I-15 between Sahara Ave. and the infamous Spaghetti Bowl Interchange in downtown Las Vegas. The project will also improve Martin Luther King Blvd., which runs parallel to I-15. It will add an HOV direct connect between U.S. 95 and I-15. An I-15 interchange called the Neon Gateway is also a key component of Project Neon.
