36th Street Interchange at I-96

Project Description


This project involved construction oversight of the reconstruction and realignment of 36th Street, 2.12 miles of I-96, and the construction of a new interchange connecting I-96 and 36th Street.

RSE Scope of Service


Project tasks included the construction of 4 new bridges, concrete pavement placement, MSE wall and soldier pile wall construction, creation of new wetlands, drainage improvements, underbridge lighting installation, construction barrier wall, guardrail, placement of permanent pavement markings, and signing. The construction of this interchange dramatically cut down the drive time required for traffic traveling from I-96 to Gerald R.
