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.

Check Out UNITED at Purdue Road School

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn about the challenges and triumphs of designing one of the first oval interchanges built in the United States and the ONLY ONE built over an interstate.

United Consulting’s Jeromy Richardson, PE and Bill Curtis, PE will present a session showcasing “The New Interchange at I-69 and 106th Street” during Purdue’s 104th Annual Road School.

The oval configuration concept initially sparked extensive scrutiny and review.  INDOT, FHWA, and other industry experts examined the design and traffic analysis. Their analysis and meetings resulted in a collaboration for designing an oval interchange with exceptional geometrics and well thought-out design elements.  Ultimately, the process resulted in verifying the oval interchange as a valid solution for the new interchange.
