COUNTY HIGHWAY C CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

County Highway C in Douglas County, Wisconsin recently underwent a repavement. The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) hired Krech Ojard to provide construction administration for this project. Krech Ojard served as Project Engineer and site inspector during construction and represented WisDOT.

One problem area at County Highway C included a “Frost Heave” section that had a history of freezing ground water causing bumps in roadway during winter months. During construction it was decided to excavate an additional four feet in areas to find ground water. From the additional excavation, the engineers discovered an underground natural spring running diagonally across road. The solution involved installing a six inch underdrain and sloped native clay below base materials two percent over 600’ of roadway to allow proper drainage to prevent further issues with the road heaving.

The County Highway C project was funded by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act Stimulus. (ARRA)

  • Pulverize and Relay project that ran 3.66 miles.
  • Inspections included grading, paving, and beam guard installations.
