Spotlight on a Few Stark Projects

Normal Subdivision Work
In mid-summer of 2013 Stark was awarded by Bloomington-Normal developers, several contracts for new subdivision work in Normal. The subdivision work included one phase at The Vineyards, and two phases at the Trails at Sunset. Subdivision work has been slow in Bloomington-Normal, but with recent work at The Grove, Blackstone, The Vineyards, and the Trails at Sunset, it is an indication that the housing market slump is on the rebound.

Community Cancer Center Ground Breaking for New Addition
The Community Cancer Center began serving McLean County and surrounding communities in 1999 in answer to the needs of the community. Ground breaking began in July 2013 on a 37,000 square foot addition. Stark has completed the underground, dirt work, and the floors for Phase 1 of the expansion. Remaining work for Phase I includes paving the parking lot. Phase II work, slated to begin in June of this year, consists of demolition, re-grading, and pouring the new parking lot. Phase II work is expected to be completed by September 2014. The Community Cancer Center treats more than 220 people every day and expects that number to grow 7% yearly. The Community Cancer Center expansion will mean more privacy and comfort for patients and improved services to McLean County and surrounding communities. Superintendents: Mark Yoder,
Kevin Pribble, Eric Ferguson (foreman), and Sean Funk (foreman)

IL Rt 9 over Mud Creek
Work resumed for IDOT on this $2.28 million dollar bridge replacement project in April. The existing 126′ long, two-span structure carrying IL Rt 9 over Mud Creek in Tazewell County was originally built in 1928. It was upgraded to its current status with precast box beams in 1975. The bridge is being replaced with a 188′ long, three-span steel beam bridge. Stark began construction last September with clearing, earthwork, and pre-grading for the new profile. In early April, Stage I demolition was completed, with the removal of 12 precast deck beams, each weighing approximately 16 tons. Temporary sheet pile was driven along the stage line to protect the open lane of traffic from undermining while excavating for the abutments. Work also began on the two cofferdams that will be used for the new pier construction. The new bridge is scheduled to be completed in October 2014. Superintendents: Kevin Pribble and Michael Westart
