In 2011, flooding from Tropical Storm Lee caused significant damage to the Owego-Apalachin School District. Consequently, FEMA announced the approval of $23 million in funding to relocate its schools to a less flood-prone area and construct the administrative, maintenance, and storage buildings that were badly damaged. One of the final steps was to reconstruct the roadway through the school’s campus, which was originally budgeted to cost $800,000. By utilizing the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) process, Ruston Paving’s Syracuse division was awarded the job and saved the district $300,000.

We were able to coordinate and present an on-site FDR seminar with the reclamation work, which was attended by school officials, local companies and municipalities. WICZ, the local FOX affiliate, even came out to do a TV news story about the project.

Happy Labor DayAccording to the US Department of Labor, Labor day was first celebrated in 1882 and  ”is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”

Our employees certainly deserve that tribute! It is due to their efforts that Ruston Paving has grown to be the strong respectable company it is today. So to our employees, however you chose to spend your holiday weekend, please do it safely as you are truly our greatest asset!

Old Dominion (paving)Old Dominion Freight Line, a nationwide shipping company, was expanding its commercial truck and employee parking lots. Initially D.F. Chase, the general contractor on the job, was soliciting bids to install some thick, heavy duty lifts of stone and asphalt to carry the load of the trucking fleet. However, we were able to save Old Dominion money by proposing to stabilize the subbase with Portland cement increasing the overall structural capacity of the pavement section and enabling a cost savings on asphalt.

Understandably, the company was certainly pleased with Ruston Paving’s ability to think outside the box and deliver a superior finished product.

Twin Lakes (grading)Twin Lakes, a premier retirement community in the Burlington area, has been steadily expanding. This project marks the seventh project Ruston Paving has completed over the years.

This most recent work was performed by our Greensboro crews as we worked for WeaverCooke, who we are proud to say is also a repeat client of ours.

Clayton Arms AptsEarlier this year, our Rochester crews completed a project at French Creek Townhomes, a property managed by Eastwood Management. Based on the success of that job, Eastwood contracted with Ruston Paving again to mill and pave its Clayton Arms Apartments. We’re delighted to say that Eastwood Management has asked us to pave a third property for them later this season.

We’re proud of the relationship we’ve developed with Eastwood Management and look forward to continuing it for years to come.

Widewaters - pavingWidewaters - finished lot

In 2015, Ruston Paving paved two properties owned by Upstate Portfolio. Based on the success of those projects, our Syracuse division was contracted this year to work at 3 other properties on Widewaters Parkway in Dewitt. A great stretch of weather allowed for our crews to complete the projects with minimal interruptions to the businesses that work there. We heard from many people who remarked that our crews did a great job, and we certainly agree!

 

Dominion Power (paving)Ruston Paving was recently contracted by Prestige Construction Group to pave an access road and parking area for the new Gas Transmission Building at Dominion Power’s Leesburg site. Our crews worked tirelessly to complete the project before some severe storms ripped through the area.

Auto Zone (Chapel Hill)Ruston Paving has been hard at work as our construction season is in full swing across all our divisions. Recently, our Durham crews set to work on a new AutoZone in Chapel Hill. Contracted by first-time customer, HJB Construction, this project required quite a bit of both onsite and road work, and our crews were ready for the job.

With the milling complete, new asphalt installed, and pavement markings in place, this brand new AutoZone store is looking spick and span for its first customers.

BiomerieuxAs bioMérieux, a world leader in the field of in vitro diagnostics, continues to expand its US headquarters in Durham, Ruston Paving is proud to once again work onsite. After removing the topsoil, our crews stabilized the area for a new parking lot by using the process of soil stabilization. An asphalt pavement layer was then installed along with new sidewalks.

Acco Brands (paving)Ruston Paving was contracted directly by Acco Brands, Inc. to mill and pave their employee parking lot. We were also able to correct some drainage issues that plagued this warehouse facility for the Illinois-based company, which makes three-ring binders, folders and document covers. Both our paving and grading crews were very helpful and professional to our contacts at Acco, which was much appreciated.  We offered suggestions to them on other ways to improve their parking lot outside of what the plans called for and they were grateful for our ideas.

There may even be a second phase to this project because of the fantastic work our crews did on the first phase.  Great job to everyone who had a hand in this project!
