Flurries Through Winter: Contractors Working Ahead of Plan in Marquette Interchange Reconstruction

This article gives an update on the Marquette Interchange Project, the largest highway construction project in Wisconsin’s history. The $810 million project, with a design life of 75 years, involves five contracts: west leg, south leg, north leg, core, as well as a preliminary contract. The article gives an overview of which components of the project have been completed and lessons learned that can be applied to other projects in the region, such as requiring contractors to use more powerful scheduling tools and project owners to be more involved. It also describes some of the innovative technologies that have been applied, such as the use of high-performance concrete with fly ash, and GPS grade control systems for grading and excavating.
