ODOT I-244 Pedestrian & Bike Improvements
Building a pathway to hope
The ODOT I-244 project joins the importance of another Crossland project, bringing access to the Greenwood Rising museum with a 900ft trail for pedestrians. The story of Greenwood was one about community and enterprise, resilience, and history. Crossland Heavy was proud to be a part of a build bringing access to showcase some of history’s most forgotten moments.
Prior to the project, the area was a slope of dirt helping to hold up a highway. The Crossland Heavy team was tasked with drilling 50 feet into the side of the hill to excavate down to reinforce and build a soil nail wall.
As the build continued, stabilizing the highway went hand in hand with the pouring of cast-in-place walls. They were accented with Barnwood stamped concrete to create a unique look. Because of the small space, the team utilized a one-sided form system, which allowed for no backfill in between.
The Crossland Heavy team was faced with multiple challenges throughout the project. The worst snow/ice storm on record completely halted construction. Design changes were made including the design of the wall after construction began.
The entire team was dedicated to great communication, so weekly meetings, daily check-ins, and three times per week project manager meetings became a normal part of the project. We persevered through challenges to deliver on time and within budget, displaying Crossland’s ability to face a challenge with success.
