Highlighted Design Projects
Trempealeau - Fountain City
QUEST created the design for this 4.5 mile preventative maintenance project. This STH 35 project was a combination rural 2-lane and 4-lane facility with Great River Road design designation and standards. The project carried over 10,000 ADT and involved concrete joint repairs, partial depth repairs, centerline repairs, continuous diamond grinding and a segment of deep concrete mill and AC overlay on the 4-lane segment. A 2-lane, 2-way work zone traffic analysis was conducted during design and as a result of the analysis construction will be staged under traffic with single lane closures and fast track concrete specified. Final design included a variety of SPV concrete repair items, diamond grinding, asphaltic surfacing, crack sealing, culvert pipe rehabilitation, beam guard adjustment, permanent signing and marking and finishing roadway.
Necedah - Coloma
Adams & Waushara Counties
QUEST created the design for this 13 mile rural 2-lane resurfacing project that is a NHS route, Corridors 2030 connector route, long truck route and primary OSOW route. The project carried over 4,500 ADT and involved milling, resurfacing, shoulder replacement, beam guard installation and replacement, pavement marking and permanent signing. Unique project features included installation of centerline rumble strips, edge line rumble strips and asphalt safety edge to reduce cross over and run off road type crashes. Included within this project is the resurfacing of the Ship Rock Wayside which is a highly utilized scenic and seasonal wayside frequented by both tourists and commuters. The project was on an accelerated schedule.
STH 54 - Elm Lake Rd
QUEST was the Prime Design Consultant for this 2.7 mile rural reconstruction project involving
substantial wetland and environmental issues, poor soils and a railroad crossing. This project was
particularly challenging due to the poor soils, the need to improve the safety thru sharp curves and
raising the profile in order to keep the water out of the pavement structure. In addition, the project is located in prime cranberry production country, it was necessary to minimize the need to purchase right-of-way and yet maintain safety slopes. Subgrade improvements such as granular lift and a geo-grid system were incorporated into the roadway embankment.
