September 8, 2020 l Seymour, IN
INDOT Commissioner Joe McGuinness, local government officials, and E&B Paving Area Manager Spencer Coe hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at the northbound weigh station near Seymour on Tuesday, September 8th to officially open the I-65 Southeast Indiana corridor between Seymour and Columbus. The project is substantially complete with the exception of the SR 11 Interchange which was added to the project scope after the project had already begun construction.
The $143 million, Best Value Design Build project between I-65 between Exit 50 (US 50) and Exit 64 (SR 58) transformed 14 miles of the original four-lane facility into a six-lane facility to improve travel and safety conditions for motorists. Seventeen bridges, eight twin bridges carrying mainline I-65 over rivers and creeks, two twin bridges over railroads, and seven bridge overpasses of I-65 were also included in the project.
The E&B Paving / United Team was selected as the Preferred Proposer in May 2017 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.
Kudos to E&B Paving on your exceptional work in providing extra-smooth pavement for the project!
