Outstanding Engineering: Michigan’s “96fix” Highway Rehabilitation

Posted by Content Coordinator on Monday, April 11th, 2016

Outstanding Engineering - 2016 ACEC National Recognition Winners

2016 ACEC National Recognition Award Winner

Firm Name: HNTB Corporation, Parsons Brinckerhoff Michigan Inc. and Great Lakes Engineering Group LLC

Project Name: 96fix

Project Location: Livonia and Redford Townships, Michigan

Client Name: Michigan Department of Transportation

96fix was the largest single-season construction project in state history. Reconstruction of the seven-mile stretch of the 40-year-old freeway included the rehabilitation of 37 bridges, installation of LED lighting and storm sewers, and safety improvements. The $153 million project was completed early and under budget, and brought I-96 in line with current standards. Innovative technologies included visual modeling to gain public support for closing the freeway during construction and 3-D design model for fine-tuning paving work. The process saved taxpayer dollars, cut freeway closure time, and improved pavement quality and safety.

The project is one of 151 being recognized by ACEC from throughout the nation and the world as preeminent 2016 engineering achievements.  All winners—including 16 Honor Awards, eight Grand Awards and the prestigious “Grand Conceptor Award” for the year’s most outstanding overall engineering achievement—will be celebrated at the upcoming Engineering Excellence Awards Dinner and Gala, a black-tie event to be held Tuesday, April 19, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C., as part of the 2016 ACEC Annual Convention.
