Lane reconstructed 10 miles of I-35 in the Waco area that included new two-lane asphalt and concrete frontage roads, and concrete reconstruction of six main lanes (three in each direction).
The project included major bridge structures that serve as a main artery for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic to/from the Baylor University football stadium.
Lane operated two onsite batch plants: one that produced over 430,000 CY of concrete for main lane paving and structures; and another that produced over 300,000 tons of hot mix asphalt used for constructing detours, concrete underlayment and portions of the frontage roads. Lane self-performed all grading and drainage operations, erosion control, bridge construction, asphalt and concrete paving, traffic control, and project/construction management.
To preserve water in one of the most drought-stricken areas in the country, Lane used 61 million gallons of reclaimed water from a nearby wastewater treatment plant to produce the concrete required for the project.
The project included:
- 433,000 CY of PCC
- 300,000 TN of asphalt paving
- two million CY of excavation
- 26 bridges including a signature bridge over the Brazos River and a direct connector bridge connecting FM 2013 directly to the northbound lane I-35
