White Construction is under contract with the Indiana Department of Transportation to design and construct six miles of new Interstate to the I-69 project, located in southwestern Indiana. The project is one of many that extend I-69 from Indianapolis to Evansville, Indiana. The project, like most within this corridor, is a green-field site. White Construction’s portion of the project includes work within multiple environmentally sensitive areas and requires managing impacts to local species. Local sensitive species include the Indiana Brown Bat and the Eastern Box Turtle. In addition to the aforementioned, the following are also project features:
PROJECT SCOPE OF WORK
- Two million cubic yards of earthwork
- 1.5 million cubic yards of borrow and 500,000 cubic yards of cut to fill.
- Twelve bridges of varying lengths and foundation designs. Foundations include both piling and drilled shafts.
- The mainline pavement section is Portland Cement Concrete Pavement with a combination of both concrete and asphalt shoulders. An aggregate sub-base on subgrade supports the pavement section.
- Project drainage features include precast concrete pipe varying in diameters from 12 to 72 inches. In addition to precast pipe, 16 precast box culverts are a part of the project drainage system.
