The Anthony Allega Cement Contractor Inc. / The Great Lakes Construction Co. Joint Venture was awarded this contract on November 18, 2011 in the amount of $59,682,003.10. This 8.33 mile project included reconstruction of I-90 with over 428,000 square yards of concrete pavement along the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-90 and SR-44 and Vrooman Road ramps. The project also rehabilitated the mainline bridges over Hermitage Road, Auburn Road, Big Creek, Paine Creek and Paine Road.

Over the course of this project, Allega performed earthwork, pavement removal, under drain, erosion control, crushed aggregate base courses and the installation of 13" Portland cement concrete pavement. Additional crossovers and shortening phases were implemented in order to ease the congestion on Interstate 90.

The eastbound and westbound lanes were divided into four stages. The first stage included the shut down of five miles of the eastbound lanes and contra flow lanes being utilized in the westbound lanes. After the completion of the first portion of the eastbound lanes, the remaining portion was shut down for the second stage while, simultaneously, work commenced on the first portion of the westbound lanes, the third stage. Contraflow was utilized for both of these stages. The final stage shut down the remaining 4.33 miles of the westbound lanes and set up contra flow lanes on the eastbound lanes. This fast track project began in the spring of 2012 and was completed in the fall of 2014.

The various improvements made by this project have enhanced the traveling experience for motorists along this stretch of I-90.
