MacArthur Boulevard Extension

Awarded “Project of the Year: Transportation” by the American Public Works Association, this Halverson new construction project included an embankment for the extension of MacArthur Boulevard from its southern terminus at the North Street/Junction circle intersection to approximately 0.5 mile south of I-72, and construction of a new diamond interchange on I-72, 1.5 miles west of the I-55/Sixth Street interchange in Springfield.

Other project highlights included construction of a two-span bridge carrying MacArthur over I-72, two four-span bridges carrying interchange ramps over Union Pacific Railway and rehabilitation of the existing I-72 bridges over Union Pacific Railway, bridge approach pavement, storm sewers, and erosion control.
