Tilcon Manages Major Pavement Resurfacing and Bridge Deck Replacement on Route I-287
Tilcon New Jersey is currently managing a major highway construction project on I-287 in Morris County, New Jersey. This federally-funded, $27 million project was commissioned by the New Jersey Department of Transportation.
It consists of milling and resurfacing a 6.8 mile stretch of I-287 from below Route 124 in Morris County to Route I-80 in Parsippany, Troy Hills. The project also includes the repair of eight bridges and one complete superstructure replacement.
The work, which began in summer 2012, will be completed by the end of 2014. It involves placing over 130,000 tons of hot mix asphalt as well as subcontracted work as follows – bridges (Joseph M Sanzari Inc), guide rail (J. Fletcher Creamer & Son), milling (Intercounty Paving Associates, LLC), markings (Statewide Striping Corp.), electrical work (Pantaleo Electric), concrete barrier (MV Contracting Inc.) and landscaping (Applied Landscape).
The majority of the work, with the exception of the bridge work, is scheduled to take place at night to minimize traffic disruption.
