Lucas Drive Improvements, Detroit Metropolitan Airport
Lucas Drive’s half mile stretches between Middlebelt Road and East Service Drive at Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport. The high daily wear and tear from serving rental car traffic had seriously deteriorated the pavement. The owner awarded Angelo Iafrate Construction Company (AIC) the contract to reconstruct the roadway, and AIC chose IHC to place the concrete pavement. IHC’s scope included 12,000 sy of 10” PCCP with integral curbs, and sidewalk. Although short in length, the project was complicated by over 20 driveway/walkway intersections to rental car agencies.
