I-75 over Rouge River

2017 – 2018

  • Total Project Investment: $154 million
  • Location: Detroit, MI

This landmark project included deck replacements on I-75 over Fort Street and the Rouge River, bridge rehabilitation on 6 structures, and the reconstruction of northbound I-75 over the Sexton and Kilfoil Drain.

Work on this project was completed in three stages. Stage one consisted of the southbound I-75 deck replacement, filler wall work, and bridge painting as well as retaining wall, soundwall, and concrete pavement repairs. Stage two of the project involved all operations in stage one, but on the northbound side. The third and final stage of the project included the removal of temporary crossovers and the restoration of the median to its pre-construction configuration.

Off-line work on this project consisted of rehabilitation to the crash wall under B01 north and southbound, standpipe installation at six locations, downspout installation, and pier cap repairs.

Work on this project was schedule critical and included six important milestones. With minimal closures allowed on mainline I-75, coordination with subcontractors was critical to ensure completion, resulting in all six milestones being achieved on time.

The I-75 bridge over Rouge River is the largest bridge in Michigan by square footage, making it C.A. Hull’s largest project as a prime contractor.
