O&G awarded $14 million I-95 Pavement Preservation Project

I-95 in Connecticut
April 16, 2015

O&G Industries was awarded a $14.4 million dollar contract by the Connecticut Department of Transportation to enhance pavement performance along a heavily-traveled five-mile stretch of Interstate 95 in the towns of Norwalk and Darien, running in both directions of travel from interchange 10 to interchange 15. 

According to O&G Project Manager John Rouleau, “the project includes safety improvements to shed water, patch bridge approaches that will reduce wear and additional improvements that will smooth out the ride for the traveling public”.  Rouleau stated that the project involves milling two-and-a-half inches of existing pavement and repaving the interstate with three inches of polymer-modified asphalt (PMA) that will be produced by O&G’s Stamford Asphalt Plant.

The project is scheduled to begin in May of 2015 and conclude in January of 2016.
