Michigan's first Interstate Highway Design-Build-Finance-Maintain Contract

MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., August 12, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Construction begins today on Segment 3 of I-75 to improve a 5.5-mile section of interstate highway through Oakland County. Segment 3 is the final piece of the almost 18-mile MDOT I-75 Modernization Program. OCP has partnered with MDOT on this vital project and through our innovative contracting approach, will bring final completion of the facility ten years earlier than previously planned.

“We are proud to be able to work together with MDOT to improve safety and ease congestion through this corridor,” said David Nachman, CEO of Oakland Corridor Partners. “Many of our team members are local firms who are excited to be investing in Michigan to bring critical infrastructure to their communities. We are also thrilled to know we will remain in the community well after construction, preserving and maintaining the roadway. We are fully committed to the investment we have made in this project and our partnership with MDOT.”

Oakland Corridor Partners is a consortium of construction, engineering, asset management and investment firms including John Laing, AECOM Capital and Dan’s Excavating (full list below) who have joined together to partner with MDOT on this project. MI 75 Constructors - our Design-Build Contractor - consists of four local S.E. Michigan contractors; Dan’s Excavating, Ajax Paving Industries, Jay Dee & C.A. Hull who will self-perform over 90% of the work.

  • Segment 3 includes the reconstruction of a 5.5-mile section of the I-75 corridor from 8 Mile to just north of 13 Mile Road as well as the construction of a new 4-mile long, 14-feet wide storage and drainage tunnel
  • 2019 construction to include pavement widening, traffic crossovers, the removal of the Dallas Road overpass and other related work to prepare for the 2020 construction season
  • Project to be fully completed by August 2023 when OCP takes over full responsibility for the maintenance of the highway for 25 years

Reminder: Segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County begins Sunday, Aug. 11

Weather permitting, work on segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project in Oakland County will begin on Sunday, Aug. 11. Initially, the construction impacts will begin on the southbound lanes from 11 Mile to 8 Mile roads as crews begin preparations for a multi-year project to rebuild more than 5 miles of pavement, replace 22 bridges, construct retaining walls, and install new drainage infrastructure.    

Starting at 3 p.m. Aug. 11, the right lane of southbound I-75 will be closed from 13 Mile to 8 Mile roads in order for crews to widen the shoulder for an eventual traffic shift. In addition to the single-lane closure, crews will close the following ramps:

            - Westbound I-696 ramp to southbound I-75,

            - Southbound I-75 exit to 8 Mile Road,

            - Southbound I-75 exit to 9 Mile Road,

            - 9 Mile Road entrance ramp to southbound I-75.

Other 2019 work includes the construction of temporary median crossovers, the removal of the Dallas Road overpass above I-75, and work on the northbound service drive.        

In 2020, all I-75 traffic will be on the southbound side of the freeway between 11 Mile and 8 Mile roads with two lanes open in each direction separated by a temporary concrete barrier. This will allow for the rebuilding of the northbound lanes from 8 Mile Road to I-696, along with all northbound ramps, retaining walls and portions of the northbound service drive.
