Completed award-winning project ahead of schedule

 

I-80 in Mahoning County, Ohio (more frequently called the Meander Reservoir Project)

As one of the largest and most challenging projects in ODOT’s history, the I-80 Widening Project at Meander Reservoir transformed I-80 from a four lane to a six lane highway and replaced the twin bridges over the Meander Reservoir. In addition, this project contains a first-of-its-kind spill containment system that protects the drinking water for 220,000 people in the surrounding area.

This project, which was a Joint Venture between Anthony Allega Cement Contractor, Inc. and Great Lakes Construction Company, was approximately 4.6 miles long with the complete reconstruction of all bridges, roadway, storm drainage, and redesign of two bridges, one eastbound and one westbound over the Meander Reservoir.

Phase 1 of the project shifted traffic in a bi-directional pattern on the existing westbound lanes as the eastbound lanes and bridges were constructed. Phase two shifted the traffic into a bi-directional pattern on the newly completed eastbound side as the westbound lanes and bridges were constructed.

The final piece of the project’s 255,132 square yards of 13” concrete pavement was completed and opened to traffic in September of 2009. We extend our gratitude to ODOT, our Joint Venture Partner, Great Lakes Construction, our subcontractors and suppliers for their assistance and continual cooperation, which allowed us to successfully complete this award winning project ahead of schedule.
