Volkert provided construction contract administration and construction engineering and inspection (CEI) services for the reconstruction of the I-10, I-12, I-59 Interchange in Slidell, Louisiana. Over ten miles of roadway at the interchange of three interstates (I-10, I-12 and I-59) were restored, rehabilitated, and resurfaced for the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD).
The project consisted of clearing and grubbing, grading, drainage structures, cold planning asphaltic concrete, class II base course, superpave asphaltic concrete pavement, open-graded friction course asphalt, Portland cement concrete pavement, temporary and permanent striping and lime treatment of sub-base. The project was a total reconstruction of 10.3 miles of roadway at the interchange. The existing concrete roadway was removed to the sub-base and replaced with over 200,000 tons of asphalt.
