Projects

Interstate 75

The Michigan Department of Transportation has been promoting the construction of "high impact" projects under accelerated contracts. To qualify as "high impact" the project must generally fit the following criteria:

  • High traffic volumes generally found in urban areas
  • Work that will complete a gap in the highway system.
  • Major reconstruction or rehabilitation on an existing facility that will severely disrupt traffic.
  • Major bridges out of service.
  • Lengthy detours.

Dan's Excavating, Inc. has been on the forefront of acquiring these contracts and in the construction of these new types of projects.

In 1998, a 2-mile portion of I-75 near the Ambassador Bridge required reconstruction. The original schedule dictated a completion time of 200 calendar days with a contract value of $20,000,000.00. The final product required 4 new lanes in each direction, wider concrete shoulders, new median and outside shoulder barrier wall, and 8 exit and entrance ramps, while maintaining traffic. The new final product was open to traffic in 82 days.

In 1999, a 2.5-mile portion of I-75 thru downtown Detroit from I-375 to I-96 required reconstruction. The original schedule dictated a completion time of 240 calendar days with a contract value of $59,000,000.00. The final product required 3 to 4 lines in each direction, wider concrete shoulders, new median and outside shoulder barrier wall, reconstruction of 32 bridges, and reconstruction of the I-375 and M-10 interchange ramps which total more than 2 miles in length when added together. The new final product was open to traffic in 118 days.
