80/90 PUSH 3.0 Project

During the Pavement Upgrade for a Superior Highway (PUSH) project, the Indiana Toll Road Concession Company (ITRCC) made a $200 million investment in the safety and quality of the roadway – the largest single project since the Toll Road was constructed. The original 80/90 PUSH Project reconstructed over 70 miles of pavement and rehabilitated 53 bridges, while the PUSH 2.0 project focused on rehabilitating Mile Markers 0-10, the most traveled section of the Toll Road, through a $70 million investment.
This year, the PUSH 3.0 project will focus on MM 93 – MM 123, bringing roadway, bridge, and safety improvements to more customers. The project will reconstruct more than 30 miles of pavement, 4 interchanges, and make improvements to 17 bridges. This investment will result in a safer and smoother Indiana Toll Road that requires less routine maintenance.
The 80/90 PUSH 3.0 Project will:
  • Reduce the level of maintenance work required in the future.
  • Provide a smoother and safer road for improved travel conditions.
  • Deliver state-of-the-art technology which improves safety and customer service.

Work Zones

The PUSH 3.0 Project will rehabilitate the pavement and bridges within a 30 mile segment of the Toll Road, from MM 93 to MM 123. Our goal is to minimize the impact to travelers by keeping traffic moving safely and proactively communicating with our customers and community stakeholders.

Minimizing Traffic Impact:

To expedite the overall project schedule, construction will occur 24/7. One lane will remain open in each direction throughout the entire project. Single lane closures on the Toll Road, combined with a reduced work zone speed limits, are designed to keep traffic flowing smoothly while maintaining a safe environment for construction workers.

Frequently Asked Questions


A Better Toll Road – 80/90 PUSH Projects

The 80/90 PUSH Projects include improvements to pavement and bridges, along with the installation of a fiber optic line. These investments have reduced the level of maintenance work required in the future, allowing ITRCC to improve customer safety and provide a better experience for travelers.


The existing pavement consists of a concrete base with an asphalt overlay. As part of these projects, the asphalt will be removed and the concrete will receive a “crack-and-seat” treatment which reduces the likelihood of future pavement cracking. These improvements also reduce the need for routine maintenance, providing a clearer road for travelers.

Bridge Improvements

All bridges in the project areas have been evaluated for structural and operational conditions so that improvements can be tailored to each bridge’s needs. Improvements to bridges include:

  • Substructure patching
  • Beam painting
  • Bearing replacements
  • Fatigue retrofits
  • Deck replacements (including widening at some locations)

Fiber Optic & Intelligent Transportation System

The 80/90 PUSH 1 and PUSH 2 projects included the installation of a fiber optic line in the corridor. This allows ITRCC to implement a range of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), giving our Traffic Management Center improved traffic monitoring tools. Dynamic message boards, closed-circuit cameras, and improved weather communications help provide real-time information to our staff, who can then accurately inform and protect Toll Road customers.


The Safety of Our Customers and Our Team is our #1 Priority

Safety is at the heart of all ITRCC projects.

First, in the work that is to be completed – new pavement, widening narrow bridges, and installing a fiber optic line that will form the backbone of Intelligent Transportation Systems that will monitor conditions and communicate with customers – each improves the safety of the Toll Road.

Second, in how the work is to be completed. ITRCC and Rieth-Riley are both committed to ensuring the safety of workers and customers. Our goal is zero lost-time injuries. To achieve this goal, our construction zones are designed with safety in mind. Construction zone vehicle accidents occur most frequently when traffic suddenly stops and drivers do not react quickly enough. Our work zones are equipped with technology that monitors traffic flow in real-time and automatically communicates this information to drivers through digital message signs.

In addition, our workers are all required to undergo a project-specific safety training program designed to keep everyone safe. We want our customers and workers to get home safe.
