Detroit Belle Isle

Project:  Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

Client:  MDOT and Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix

Annual Project Cost:   $4,000,000

This exciting and unique ongoing project consists of the annual design and construction engineering of several new phases of the Belle Isle Grand Prix Racetrack. Since 2014, the track has fallen under MDOT jurisdiction including all plans, specifications and bidding.  Wolverine has specifically designed many MDOT details used in special events such as race fan traffic control and parking; ADA pedestrian bridges, crossings and bus staging areas; high speed curb and gutter systems; and high speed HMA pavement mixes and pavement drainage systems.

Annually, the work entails the design and construction engineering of approximately ¼ -mile of various portions of the track utilizing hot mix asphalt, cold milling, crushing/shaping/ resurfacing, machine grading, aggregate base, concrete curb, gutter, driveways and ramps.  In 2012 Wolverine was called in to assist with emergency repairs when the track surface starting spalling mid-race.  Wolverine traced the problem to poor aggregate and oversaw the repairs.
