America's Transportation Awards

96Fix

Michigan Department of Transportation’s $153 million 96Fix project in the Detroit metro area rebuilt and enhanced seven miles of freeway, 37 bridges, and improved safety conditions for more than 140,000 motorists that use the highway daily with a new LED freeway lighting system. By using paperless construction, e-permitting, and other technologies to improve efficiency, the project was completed ahead of schedule.
