IDOT – I-190 Resurfacing From O’Hare Airport to I-90

Tecma served as the Prime Consultant providing Phase III Construction Engineering Services for this $5 Million Pay for Performance project, which was completed in the Fall of 2013.  The project included mainline milling and resurfacing of 4 miles of Eastbound and Westbound I-190 with SMA.  The project also included milling/resurfacing of several entrance/exit ramps to/from Bessie Coleman Drive, Mannheim Road, River Road, and NB/SB I-294.  Other work included pavement patching, induction/detector loop replacement, the removal and replacement of 700 ft. of slotted drain, removal/replacement of concrete curb and gutter, adjustment/reconstruction of drainage structures, installation of aggregate shoulders, rumble strip installation, drainage structure/storm sewer cleaning, and pavement marking/RPM installation.  Through the work on this contract, Tecma staff developed strong, professional working relationships with key project stakeholders including the various IDOT Bureaus, the Chicago Department of Transportation, the Chicago Department of Water Management, the Village of Rosemont, the Chicago Department of Aviation and OMP, CTA, and the Illinois Tollway.  Tecma personnel successfully managed project specific challenges on this contract including Stone Matrix Asphalt (SMA) production/installation, completing the project on schedule despite restrictive working hours due to the proximity of the project to O’Hare Airport terminals, and extensive coordination of work/lane closures with abutting Tollway contract RR-11-4089 (Reconstruction of I-294 NB ramp to River Road/WB I-190).Tecma also coordinated daily with O’Hare/OMP personnel and abutting IDOT Contracts (Cumberland Avenue and Mannheim Road Reconstruction Projects).
