When planning the Marquette Interchange Project a key challenge facing WisDOT was to minimize the inconvenience to motorists, thus limiting the impact to downtown businesses. Precast products were chosen for many reason but primarily because of time and cost efficiencies, which allowed concrete bridge girders to be installed quickly. Spancrete supplied more than 300 bridge girders, weighing almost 15,000 tons in total. In addition to the bridge girders, Spancrete provided wall panels, which are being used as an attractive and sturdy erosion-control and sound absortion solution. Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) was used for the wall panels, a first for WisDOT. It leaves a flawless finish, ideal for intricate architectural elements.
- Reconstruction of highly traveled interchange, required minute by minute planning and delivery schedule - Every Day Counts Iniative
- Minimization of traffic noise allowed for the use of decorative wall panels as a sound barrier.
