Project complete

Bituminous pavement being placed using the "echelon paving" method. An echelon paving operation uses two pavers that operate side-by-side. This is the first echelon paving project in MnDOT District 1. Echelon paving results in a higher quality pavement with a longer service life. Over 100,000 tons of bituminous pavement have been placed on this project as of late-July
