 Jeffersonville, IN / April 23, 2019 / Spring Street Corridor – Claysburg Segment

The city of Jeffersonville hosted an official Groundbreaking Ceremony to kick-off the much anticipated improvements to the Spring Street Corridor. Project planning has been ongoing since 2017 when United prepared the Engineer’s Report, detailing the design elements, construction costs, and schedules for multiple roadway segments extending from Riverside Drive to Dutch Lane.

The new enhancements will be consistent with the recent improvements to the Downtown area and will provide congruency between the two neighborhoods. Residents in the Claysburg community are excited for safer pedestrian access along the busy corridor which will include new sidewalks and lighting.

United prepared supplemental topographic ground survey, design plans, and bid documents for the Claysburg Segment which will is the first of four to be constructed. United’s involvement with this segment will continue through the construction inspection phase.

Monon Trail over SR 32 Groundbreaking

 

With shovels in hand and smiling faces, the city of Westfield elected officials and local dignitaries braved the cold to officially initiate the beginning of the Monon Trail over SR 32 Project during a Groundbreaking Ceremony on November 13th. The project is located along the west side of Wheeler Road at State Road 32 and promises to significantly improve safety for both trail users and motorists along SR 32 and along the Monon Trail.

The project limits fall within the main north/south trail route that provides connectivity between downtown Westfield, the Grand Junction, and Grand Park. The bridge was designed by United Consulting to consistently maintain the aesthetic value and match the appearance of the two neighboring Monon Trail bridges located over Carmel Drive and 146th Street.

Upon completion of this SR 32 project, the main span for the new structure will be 176 feet long. That’s over twice the length of the Monon over Carmel Drive Bridge and one and a half times longer than 146th Street crossing!

I-65 SE Indiana Groundbreaking

April 13th delivered clear, sunny skies and a perfect day for the I-65 SE Indiana Groundbreaking Ceremony. The ceremony, officiated by Governor Eric Holcomb and INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness, kicked-off the 2018 construction season. Among the dignitaries and businessmen, E&B Paving’s Little Jake was front and center with shovel in hand as the ceremonial dirt began to fly.

The I-65 SE Indiana project is a $143 million Best Value Design Build which reconstructs and adds a travel lane to the interstate from US 50 to SR 58.

The E&B Paving / United Team was selected as the Preferred Proposer last May after going through a rigorous submittal process and proposing a solid, well thought-out plan that exceeded INDOT’s scoring criteria, providing several added-value elements to the project scope — one of which shortens the proposed project schedule by 44 days.
