I-5 - Joe Leary Slough to Nulle Road Vicinity - Paving Design Build - Complete Fall 2012

Overview
The asphalt pavement along 12 miles of northbound I-5 between Burlington and Bellingham was breaking down. Old concrete panels beneath the asphalt caused the pavement to crack and separate. The concrete panels dated back to when the interstate was first built in the 1960s, and were paved over in the early 90s.

To permanently repair the interstate and smooth the roadway for drivers, we ground out all of the existing asphalt, repaired the concrete panels, then repaved.

We also paved all on- and off-ramps in both the north- and southbound directions of I-5 within the project limits.
