QIC: Sheldon G. Hayes Award
the PTC to deem the pavement
defective, requiring it be removed
and replaced. The pressure was on
to ensure the reconstruction of
each layer and each lane was done
correctly the first time.
"The PTC demands high-quality
pavement and I'm happy that
Lindy Paving was able to provide it
for them," said Dan Ganoe, Lindy
Paving Vice President of Operations.
"PTC specifications have very tight
tolerances, and typically failure to
meet the specifications results in
removing and replacing the entire
lot. We work very hard and strive to
meet every spec all of the time."

Strategies for Quality Solutions

Lindy Paving Inc. was contracted by the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission to reconstruct and
widen a stretch of the turnpike, a multi-faceted project that took two years to complete and included
the removal of the existing concrete roadway and full depth reconstruction of the roadway.

coordination with other contractors
can be complicated by changes
or unexpected events at those
companies. To ensure continuity
and quality, Lindy Paving kept
the same paving crew on all the
mainline lifts over the course of
the project.
Phase I began in the fall of 2014;
the company constructed temporary
pavement for traffic control purposes
in preparation for the following two
years of roadwork. The temporary
pavement allowed two lanes of
traffic to flow freely while working
on Phase II of the project. In 2015,
Phase II involved removing the
existing shoulders, and excavating
for the additional lanes and roadway
width, outside lane, and four feet of
the middle lane in each direction.
This phase included constructing
the new outside shoulders, travel
lane, and four feet of the middle lane
along with the new structures. This
would allow enough room for two
lanes of free flowing traffic during
Phase III of the project.

In 2016, Phase III of the project
was performed. For each direction
of the turnpike, the remaining eight
feet of the middle lane, the left
lane, and the median shoulder were
constructed. Adjustments were made
so that the wearing joint would not
be in the wheel path of the middle
lane and would be constructed in its
correct location.
Each phase of the project also
included building a portion of the
six mainline bridges, three in each
direction.

Meeting the Specs
One of the most challenging aspects
of the project was ensuring all six
layers of the roadway met cross slope
specifications. These specifications
required exacting work with +/-0.2
percent of design cross slope for
the travel lanes (.25 inches in a
12-foot width) and +/-0.5 percent
of design cross slope for shoulders
and medians. The PTC's contract
stated that any failures to meet
spec on the wearing course allowed

The excavated concrete pavement
was crushed and reused as the
sub-base for the project. Mainline
paving started with a 4-inch course
of asphalt treated permeable base.
Lindy Paving used material from
three of their plants to supply the
project. "Even though the material
transfer vehicle was only required
on the mainline surface course,
we used it for every lift," said Greg
Tomon, Lindy Paving Field Quality
Control Manager. "It gives us a
better ride because the trucks didn't
have to dump directly into the
paver, which can cause a bumping
effect in the mat. It also prevents
material and thermal segregation."
Following the initial base, Lindy
Paving placed a 4-inch 25 mm
64-22 bottom base course, followed
by a 7.5-inch 25 mm 64-22 base
course, a 3-inch 19 mm 64-22
binder course, and a 2-inch 12.5
mm 76-22 wearing course. Each
course included 20 percent RAP,
except for the wearing course, which
had 10 percent RAP.
"In order to use RAP in mix
designs for the PTC, the RAP must
come from the turnpike, and any
RAP used in a wearing course must
be wearing RAP from the turnpike,"
