Oates Associates is honored to have taken part in the rehabilitation of I-255 – an interstate that we use daily. The concept of a complete closure was used to improve the interstate, which resulted in keeping motorists and workers safe, completing construction in 9 months instead of 4 years and $14 million in savings.  After receiving the American Council of Engineering Companies of Illinois Honor Award the project earned recognition from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials for Midwest states in the America’s Transportation Awards.  The project received honors for Best Use of Technology & Innovation in the medium project group.  Read more about the I-255 project here.
