All bids completed for mainline I-94 North-South Project

Project on track to be completed in record time

By - Jul 24th, 2018 02:11 pm

The I-94 North-South project will be the fastest mega project in WisDOT history. Today, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) is announcing the low bidder on the I-94 North-South Project northern segment from County G in Racine County to College Avenue in Milwaukee County. Walsh Construction Company from Chicago, Illinois was the lowest of two bids at $161,597,372.93.

The project involves reconstructing and expanding 7.5-miles of freeway, reconstructing the interchange at 7 Mile Road and constructing a new interchange at Elm Road. Other work includes drainage, grading, paving, traffic signals and structures.

The Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal for this contract is 10%.

Wisconsin communities across the state are already engaging in the economic rewards of the investment advancing the I-94 North-South project and the Foxconn development roads to support this thriving corridor as multiple businesses like Amazon, ULINE, Haribo and others are joining the Wisconsin Valley Science and Technology Park locating or expanding in this region.

Shippers and manufacturers move over $90 billion in goods along this corridor every year. We’re accelerating road construction work to ensure the freeway and local roads continue to support the rapid growth that is occurring across the corridor. Currently, construction contractors in Dodge, Jackson, Marathon, Outagamie and Wood counties, to name a few, have already received contracts during this construction phase.

The final segment of the mainline is awarded and all contracts will be completed by Memorial Day 2020.

    @DAG999, Yes, Just like the FoxCON-job, Walker and republican idiots give the Chinese 4.5 billion of our (and our children’s) tax dollars and Illinois gets the jobs.
