I-69 Finish Line #1 Road Project

The I-69, Contract 2 project was named the #1 Road Project by Roads and Bridges magazine. BF&S led the construction inspection efforts on this 6 mile stretch of State Road 37 in Martinsville which included removing the existing highway that passed through the city and replaced it with an interstate.

Converting the four-lane highway into an interstate highway cause
significant interruptions to existing utility lines along the roadway. A minimum of 16 utility companies were required to move lines located along State Road 37. Water and sewer utility lines had no
tracer, however, and were difficult to locate. Subsurface utility engineering was conducted to find the lines, which entailed drilling holes to achieve a high confidence level in utility locations.
