Several excavators and dump trucks operate along a road.

Highway 113 South Road Building & Paving

As part of the Highway 113 reconstruction project in Dane County for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation, Michels Road & Stone, Inc. removed the deteriorated asphalt, corrected areas of deficient subgrade, placed rock layers meeting stringent moisture/density requirements, modified bridge parapet walls to comply with current safety standards, constructed a new roundabout to improve traffic safety, modified turn lanes and added traffic signals at another intersection, and improved drainage facilities along the length of the roadway. 

To meet the tight, 90-day construction window, we scheduled multiple crews and dump trucks for expedient transportation of materials to and from the site. We excavated nearly 146,000 cubic yards of earth for the project, produced and placed 220,000 tons of roadway aggregates and installed more than 12,000 feet of underdrain. 

Michels Road & Stone’s work corrected substandard roadway foundations by replacing existing material with well-drained rock that provides superior durability to offset weather and heavy traffic, which includes more than 20,000 vehicles per day.
