This was a pavement improvement project. The main Interstate 90 lanes from Division Street to the Hamilton Interchange were smoothed with a concrete grinding process. From Hamilton to Custer Street (near Havana) the concrete was resurfaced with an asphalt overlay. In the Valley, the 1,500 foot test segment of westbound I-90 was also resurfaced. In addition, a majority of the on and off ramps betweeen the Geiger Interchange and the Sullivan Road were paved, a number of the freeway signs were replaced, and some sections of guardrail upgraded.
Resurfacing of rutted pavement makes I-90 safer for drivers. New signs with improved reflectivity are easier to see. Upgraded guardrail improved safety.
