Cherry Hill recently completed the phase 1 median work on the $90 million I-95 General Purpose and Express Toll Lanes from the I-895 Split to South of Kenwood Avenue and Chesaco Avenue Bridge Project. The phase 1 work consisted of reconstruction of the Northbound and Southbound left shoulder from north of Hazelwood Avenue to the I-95/I-895 split. This also included the construction of four median sign foundations for overhead sign structures OH-1, OH-3, OH-6, and OH-7. Upon completion of the shoulder reconstruction and the median sign foundations all northbound and southbound lanes were restriped shifting the traffic toward the median and allowing barrier placement along the outside for phase 2 construction.
In addition to completing the as-designed Phase 1, Cherry Hill was able to work many Phase 2 construction activities concurrently.
Some of these Phase 2 activities include the construction of the following:
- Completion of Retaining Wall 19
- Completion of the Box Culvert Extension
- Completion of Phase 1 of the Chesaco Bridge Extension (BR-7) currently in Phase 2 with the Phase 2 demolition completed
- Partial Completion of Retaining Walls 15 & 18
- Installation of Caissons for Noise Wall 1A, Noise Wall 6, and Partial NW4, NW2, NW5
- Installation of the Support of Excavation for Retaining Wall 11
- Installation of the Soldier Piles for the SOE at Retaining Wall 12
- The 24” Sanitary Sewer
- Portions of the mainline storm drainage system approximately 3,300 LF
This project is currently in the second of three phases and has a Contract completion date of January 18th, 2011.
