Overlays (Highways) – Gold

Gold Award – Thin Concrete Overlay, State Road 3, Henry and Delaware Counties, IN

Contractor: E&B Paving*

Owner: Indiana Department of Transportation   

Engineer: SJC Associates

State Road 3 in Henry and Delaware Counties exemplifies the Indiana DOT’s dedication to being on the cutting edge of concrete paving.

The project included a thin overlay portion, a 9 in. concrete portion and variable depth transition areas. There are three sets of bridges, an overpass with ramps at US 36, and a Norfolk Southern Railroad crossing on the road, all of which were greatly enhanced by this project. 

Transitions to the bridges were smoothed out and reinforced with added sleeper slabs; pavement under the US 36 bridge was replaced after drainage was improved; and the railroad crossing was repaved, and the track elevations were adjusted in coordination with Norfolk Southern Railway.

E&B Paving averaged nearly 5,000 ft of paving per day, placing 12 ft. wide concrete pavement.  On the best day  of the project, crews placed 8,400 SY in nine hours. In addition to the high speed of construction,  the concrete paving quality was excellent, as evidenced by the $187,000 in smoothness incentives awarded to the contractor.

The 4.5 in. concrete overlay was placed on a milled asphalt surface. The patch areas were excavated, patched and milled to create a uniform, rough textured surface. The transition areas were placed on compacted aggregate, subbase density was verified using the light weight deflectometer (LWD). The 9 in. concrete was placed on 6 in. of compacted aggregate with a 3 in. drainage layer, and the density was also verified using the LWD method. More than 344,000 SY of concrete was used to overlay 49.23 lane miles on the 12.3 mile long project.

Reliever & General Aviation Airports – Silver Award

Reliever & General Aviation Airports

Silver Award – Runway 18-36 Extension, Delphi Municipal Airport, Delphi, IN
Contractor: E&B Paving, Inc.*
Owner:  City of Delphi Board of Aviation Commissioners  
Engineer: NGC Corporation

Shortly after this project began, it was discovered during fine grade and proof rolling that several areas needed attention. After placing the 2,750 ft. of underdrain, the grading contractor began undercutting the 2,944 SY of subgrade 12-in.-deep, placed geogrid, then filled with approved #2 stone.

At this point, the fall rains set in and then turned cold. In order to deliver the best project possible, the contractor completed the subbase and paving in late spring. E&B Paving began placing the required 4 in. of P-209 last June and completed the 2,512 tons placement the following day.

Because of weather, paving of the 60-ft.-wide runway began on June 14, at which time E&B Paving elected to pave the center 20-ft. lane first so the subbase could be re-graded. After the curing, the contractor started paving the two outside lanes using the lithium nitrate mitigated 6-in. P-501 concrete. All 1,108 CY of concrete were delivered in front discharge trucks from the nearby Lafayette plant. This 1,350-ft. project then had joints widened, beveled and sealed with silicone sealant.

In 2008, a 5-in. concrete overlay was placed on the 2,650-ft. runway, so now with the addition of the 1,350-ft. extension, Delphi Municipal Airport has a well-designed and constructed runway that will serve the area for many years to come. The 4,000-ft. runway can now accept small jets and other aircraft, which is important to the business and economic growth in Delphi and the surrounding communities.
