MIDSOUTH PAVING INC.,
AN OLDCASTLE MATERIALS CO.

Alabama Department of Transportation
U.S. 231 in Coffee County
Dothan, Ala.
The crews working on the milling and resurfacing
project on U.S. 231 in Pike and Coffee counties in
Alabama met challenges in almost every direction - left,
right, and even from up above.
One constant battle during construction was cars
speeding by the construction zone, sometimes on both
sides of working crews. Although considered rural
territory, U.S. 231 is a major north-south corridor that
runs the entire length of the state and terminates in
Panama City, Fla. It is a highly-traveled road with a
standard 65 mph speed limit, with only a center turn lane
for either direction that runs the length of the road.
Construction workers milled 2.32 inches off the
existing pavement and then immediately laid down
the surface course. They had to contend with traffic
traveling at high rates of speed on both sides of the
paving operation.
"When we closed a lane, we had to get the traffic
control far enough outside of the construction zone so
we could work," said Glenn Phillips, Area Manager in
Dothan, Ala., for Midsouth Paving Inc. The company was
required to lay the first lift the same day milling took
place, "so there was no drop off on the lanes out there
under traffic."
Milling to that depth created some drainage issues
due to cross-slope. Even after laying the surface layer,
a lip of slightly less than one inch remained. This lip
would hold water in the roadway when it rained. "We
started operations on the lower side and worked our
way up so the water would drain off, and we didn't trap
any water," Phillips said.

U.S. 231 contains many curves and inclines, which created limited site
distances as vehicles approached work zones in Midsouth Paving Inc.'s
7.4-mile paving project.

U.S. 231 contains many curves and inclines, which
created limited site distances as vehicles approached work
zones. "We had to be cognizant of where we placed lane
closures to give vehicles visibility of the approaching
enclosed lane," he said. Traffic control was maintained
through state troopers and a radar trailer, flashing the
travel speed of oncoming traffic.
The 7.4-mile project received high quality control
scores for both workmanship and consistency of
materials in paving.

NORTHEAST ASPHALT INC., A WALBEC GROUP CO.
Wisconsin Department of Transportation
U.S. 45 in Shawano County
Greenville, Wis.

Northeast Asphalt performed a total reconstruction
of an 8-mile portion of U.S. 45 in Marion, Wis., with
a slew of items on the checklist: milling the existing
pavement, pulverizing the remaining asphalt, fine
grading, and paving.
The contract with the Wisconsin Department
of Transportation (WISDOT) specified that milling
operations could not extend more than one mile in
length ahead of the pulverize and relay operations. In
addition, pulverized surfaces had to be paved within 48
hours. Restrictions were also placed on milled surfaces
and length of lane closures.
This presented a challenge to Northeast Asphalt in
terms of planning and timing, said Taylor Tauer, Project
Manager for Northeast Asphalt. "Staging was really what
restricted us from a construction standpoint and made it
difficult," Tauer said. Four crews were working at the same
time, with only two lane closures amidst heavy traffic.
On the production side of operations, Northeast
Asphalt used a portable asphalt plant in a new site

For its total reconstruction of 8 miles of U.S. 45, Northeast Asphalt Inc.
recorded one of the best ride numbers in the company's history.
