This project involved the removal of the Ten Mile overpass and a complete rebuild of Ten Mile Road from Franklin Road to Overland Road along with the realignment of Tasa Drive and concrete paving of I‑84. Five reinforced concrete structures were constructed on Ten Mile Road including three bridges, one box culvert, and one retaining wall. The Ten Mile Overpass is a post‑tensioned Single Point Urban Interchange (SPUI) bridge. Curb, gutter and sidewalk were placed throughout the project. J‑U‑B provided inspection support, materials sampling and testing, stormwater inspection and construction administration services.
The Issues: One of the biggest challenges on this project was to have the fourth lane on I-84 open as soon as possible to help alleviate traffic on I-84.
How we addressed the issues: J-U-B worked with ITD and the contractor to help accelerate the roadway construction and open the fourth lanes early. Overall, the project was completed early and under budget.
The Results: The project resulted in a new interchange for the residents of Meridian, Ada and Canyon County as well as two other bridges and a full widening and rebuild of Ten Mile Road.
The Benefits: The increased access also helped alleviate traffic on the nearby interchanges as well as open up future development options in the immediate area.
