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.
