What We Did

M-39 is a major commuter highway in Southeastern Michigan, running through numerous residential communities. When it was time to rebuild three miles of concrete between McNichols and Nine Mile roads, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) required a very short production schedule and exacting noise control standards. The project also included reconstruction of 24 bridges and 77,000 cubic yards of concrete.

Ajax Paving was more than up to the task. Our crews performed exhaustive benchmarking for more than two months before construction began to ensure new noise levels would meet specifications. Also, sixty people worked seven days a week to ensure they met the open date mandated by MDOT.

The M-39 project was completed more than two weeks ahead of schedule and earned the Michigan Concrete Association’s Award of Excellence in 2011.
