I-90 resurfacing project near Beaver Creek wins overlay award from state association

Lead Summary

The Concrete Paving Association of Minnesota (CPAM) has recognized the I-90 construction project near Beaver Creek with the “MnDOT Overlays Award 2022.”
The $22.5 million project from Beaver Creek to the South Dakota border was noted for its “efficient coordination of multiple construction activities on the busy route.”
Crews completed eastbound paving and switched traffic over to pave westbound miles, all in the same construction season.
Rock County Road 6 at Beaver Creed had closed ramps for only seven calendar days and reported no major safety incidents, despite head-to-head configuration of high traffic volumes, material hauling, and multiple stages involving the county roads.  
“This modern concrete pavement will serve motorists and trucks for decades to come — at least 35 years before it will need maintenance,” said Matt Zeller, CPAM Executive Director.
“Its surface will remain smooth, stable, and resilient throughout its life. Congratulations to the award winners.”
Paving contractor PCI Roads and prime contractor Duininck Inc. rehabilitated about 9.5 miles of I-90 road surface with 7.5 inches of concrete pavement for District 7 of the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The award banquet March 9-10 in Waite Park was part of CPAM's Annual Concrete Paving Workshop.
