Projects

Rakow Road Reconstruction, Crystal Lake, IL

 

We reconstructed three miles of a two-lane road into a 5-7 lane highway. The job included pavement removal, earth

excavation, PCC concrete base installation, asphalt resurfacing and installation of retaining walls and underground utilities.

Toastmaster Demolition,

Algonquin

 

We coordinated demolition of the former Toastmaster site

and removal of the foundations and contaminated soil.

The project required soil remediation that was transferred

to an approved landfill.

Navy Military Housing

Midwest Privatization

Project

 

This project includes the revitalization of military

neighborhoods at Great Lakes, Fort Sheridan and

Glenview Naval Bases. The process involved the

demolition of existing neighborhoods, including all

roadways and utilities, asbestos abatement,

contaminated soil removal and recycling of all

concrete for the new reconstruction of

resident-style homes. The work included building

demolition, site clearing and demolition, mass

excavation, utility infrastructure removals, new

utilities and subdivision roadway construction.

Chicago Executive

Airport

 

This project included the demolition of four 1940’s

hangar building at the Chicago Executive Airport in

order to construct new concrete taxiways.

Long Grove

Shopping Center,

Long Grove, IL

 

We transformed the existing Long Grove Archer Parking

Lot into a drive-thru street and reconfigured the parking

facility by surrounding it with beautiful new landscaping.

This involved specialty work including the installation of

bioswales in the islands, vehicular and pedestrian brick

pavers, granite banding along the walkways, decorative

lighting, native plantings and more.

Wind Farm, DeKalb, IL

 

This was the site of a massive wind energy project.

In DeKalb County, 119 wind turbines were built.

When the turbines were completed, we were

hired to repair, overlay and strengthen the rural

low-volume roads used during the project. We

placed 20 miles of asphalt pavement (42,000 tons)

so the existing roadways were to equal or better

condition than when the project started.

Hawley Road

Reconstruction,

Countryside Golf Course,

Mundelein, IL

 

We were contracted to reconstruct and widen the existing

Hawley Road for a Del Webb community. We installed box

culverts to create an underground tunnel to allow golf carts

safe passage under the road at the Countryside Golf Club.

We removed the roadway, excavated 20 feet below grade,

installed the box culverts and storm sewer, placed the

backfill and stone sub-base and paved the roadway.

Atkinson Road,

Grayslake, IL

 

This project consisted of reconstructing the existing

road, which was located in a very saturated wetland

and had shown signs of settling and deterioration.

 We replaced the base of the existing roadway with

Styrofoam blocks (expanded polystyrene fill) that

allowed the roadway to “float” over the marshland

and act as a bridge between the unsuitable soils.

We then backfilled and repaved the roadway with

asphalt pavement.

Illinois Tollway

 

We reconstructed eight miles of the existing 4-lane rural

Interstate I-90 expressway and transformed it into a

6-lane modern interstate highway with a permanent

concrete median barrier wall and roadway lighting. This

project was completed within two construction seasons

and included completely removing the existing pavement

and road shoulders, earth excavation and grading, plus

the construction of three new lanes of concrete pavement

in each direction on a 3 in. warm mix asphalt sub-base.

The new concrete pavement was built as a two-lift

concrete pavement, using salvaged asphalt pavement

in the bottom layer of the concrete pavement. All of the

existing asphalt and concrete pavement was salvaged

and used for the new 6-lane interstate highway.

 

The Illinois Tollway awarded Curran Contracting “Roadway Contractor of the Year” for this project.

Kitty Hawk Road, Universal City, TX

 

We reconstructed and rehabilitated a main city

thoroughfare. The project included excavation,

stabilization, utilities and asphalt paving.

We were able to complete the entrances for

a highly congested shopping center with limited

access and no disruptions.

FM 532, Gonzales, TX

 

For this unique project we rehabilitated an old rural farm

road into a heavily traveled truck route.  This included

13 miles of pulverization, stabilization, installation of

a flex-base and asphalt paving. We performed our

construction operations under high traffic volumes

without closures or disruptions to the traveling public.

Borgfeld Drive,

San Antonio, TX

 

We reconstructed a county highway and installed

box culverts, installed MSE walls, provided excavation

services and asphalt paving. We provided alternate scheduling and staging options to the owner to

reduce the overall job schedule. We were able to

maintain the flow of high traffic volume and facilitate

timely completion. Additionally, we provided safe

travel for the general public and a safe work

environment for the area workforce.
