Provided design for upgrade and/or reconstruction of approximately 57 different paved and unpaved state, county, and municipal owned public roadways in Pennsylvania that were damaged by Marcellus/Utica Shale related drilling traffic.
Provided design for seven dirt and gravel roads, totaling 27 miles, through the Allegheny National Forest that will be subjected to heavy traffic from oil and gas drilling.
Provided design for reconstruction of over 750 miles of paved state, county, & municipal owned public roadways in Ohio, Pennsylvania, & West Virginia that were damaged by Marcellus/Utica Shale related drilling traffic.
Performed initial evaluations of pavement condition and distress, plus test pit explorations to evaluate the pavement section and subgrade conditions.
Designed specialty slope & wall stability systems to support areas of slope instability affecting public roads.
Full depth reclamation (FDR) mix design testing for over 700 miles of roadways in PA, WV, and OH for the oil and gas industry.
The FDR process involves pulverizing the existing asphalt, aggregate base and subgrade soils and mixing them with cement and water to create a new subbase layer that will support the new asphalt pavement. This “green” process produces very little waste and is often more economical than conventional pavement replacement methods.
