I-29 Concrete Pavement Repair Main Ave to Wild Rice River
Project work starts, Monday June 15, and is expected to conclude in September 2015.
I-29 from 0.3 miles north of the Main Ave. interchange (exit 65) to the Wild Rice bridge at the Davenport interchange (exit 54). Work zone is approximately 12 miles.
Crews will conduct Concrete Pavement Repair (CPR) in five-mile sections at a time from Wild Rice River to 0.3 miles north of Main Ave. in the northbound and southbound lane.
Approach “slab jacking” and painting of the following I-29 overpasses:
- 19th Ave. N
- 9th Ave. S
- 13th Ave. S
- Shopping Center (“Texas turn”)
- 17th Ave. S
Speeds will be reduced to 40 mph in the metro area and 65 mph outside of the metro
Workers will be working right next to the traffic flow throughout the project. There will be tight lanes of traffic to maintain two lanes of open traffic throughout the work zone.
Lane closures could cause “significant delays,” with traffic volumes in the area.
- Rush hour traffic will see a slowdown
- Congestion could occur in the southbound (AM) and northbound (PM)
The scope of work for this project is to support preventive maintenance work in the district. Preventive maintenance helps delay a roadway’s deterioration, maintains or improves the functional condition, and extends the pavement’s service life.
Approximately $2.8 million.
Funding: The project is funded by 90% federal funds, 10% state funds.
