I-74 Highway

11 structures on I-74 between Covington and Veedersburg

Location: I-74 Hwy, IN
Project Type: Department of Transportation

About this Project

RAM Construction was the prime contractor for the Indiana Department of Transportation project, which required the repair and protection of 11 structures on I-74 between Covington and Veedersburg. Recently the Indiana Department of Transportation has added measures to the contract which enhance worker safety on Interstate Highway construction projects. On this project temporary barrier wall was installed to separate the traveling public from the workers. To reduce the time needed to install the 3500 lf of barrier wall at multiple locations during multiple phases, a lightweight aluminum barrier wall was utilized as each 50 LF section only weighs 3,000 lbs.

Once the safety measures were installed RAM Construction Services was able to start the work that would preserve the bridge for many years to come. the first task was to identify areas of deteriorated concrete on both the bridge deck and the barrier walls, repair using conventional batched concrete, rapid setting bag concrete and epoxy mortar patching. After the completion of all repairs long term preventative measures were installed on both the barrier walls and the bridge deck. Those measures included sealing the barrier walls using a clear penetrating sealer that repels water, protecting the bridge deck with a polymer overlay, and resealing the construction joints.

"I would like to take this time and recognize Warren for his work on the Ford Hub project in Dearborn, MI as it relates to the foundation and under slab waterproofing and vapor mitigation systems. Warren has shown an extended dedication an effort to this project and assisted in our efforts to provide the customer with a quality product and installation. This particular project has had numerous challenges as it relates to the project design, manufacturer’s requirements, and stringent project schedule. Warren has shown an extended effort which include but not limited to immediate responsiveness to current work being put in place, issues resulting from inspections, managing and appropriating field crews for work in multiple areas, and assisting in resolving issues with the waterproofing and vapor mitigation systems. We appreciate his positive attitude on a daily basis, and consistent work ethic."

"Jason provides astounding leadership, an acute ability to comprehend what needs to be done, and executes in an extremely timely fashion without sacrificing quality or safety. Since he joined our project team he has been very responsive, a go getter, and if we lived in a perfect world I believe the entire masonry restoration scope would have been complete before the first snow fall. He is also not shy about speaking out if there is an issue vs taking the easier route and passing the buck onto the next person or next trade or down the road leaving an issue for GRPS or RC to deal with. He has helped our team with expanding our knowledge on masonry work in general and has provided lessons that our team to take to the next project and beyond."
