Tech Ready Mix Inc.’s applicable experience reaches a multitude of platforms and includes not only supplying concrete at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport e.g. New Air Traffic Control Tower and Runway GR-24L but possibly its most significant project in this arena - Phase 1 of the Opportunity Corridor Project. The purpose of the Opportunity Corridor Project is to improve the transportation system and support planned economic development in the areas between I-490/I-77 and University Circle in Cleveland.
The area between I-490 and University Circle includes a part of Cleveland known as the “Forgotten Triangle” due to the lack of economic activity. Aside from the transportation benefits it could bring to this part of Cleveland, this effort opens the potential for new economic development, new jobs and a new identity for the community. The project is following a 14-step process that outlines project development from concept through completion.
In April 2013, the Federal Highway Administration coordinated a project Cost Estimate Review. Based on this review, the total cost of the project is estimated to be $331.3 million. Phase 1 includes roadwork from East 105th Street from Quebec Avenue to north of Chester Avenue in Cleveland, Ohio. TRM supplied over 23,900 cubic yards of concrete for Phase I and while the project’s completion is not slated until 2021 benefits from the Phase I portion have already been felt throughout this community.
