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!

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!

 

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!

Preventing RollawaysEvery year, hundreds of accidents and injuries occur from rollaway vehicles in which a motor vehicle, after the transmission has been locked into a parked position, is believed to have rolled either forward or backward by the transmission purposefully or inadvertently moving or slipping into another gear position. Operators experiencing roll-away and/or runaways have been pinned by their vehicle, fallen under the wheels of their vehicle while chasing it down the street, or have allowed their unattended vehicle to strike members of the community.

In an effort to eliminate this preventable incident, Ruston Paving has added mandatory wheel chocks be placed on all our unattended vehicles and trailers. This is just one of the many facets to our safety program that serves to our make our job sites safer and protect our employees and the general public.

We Hire VeteransRuston Paving recognizes the values military service instills in our country’s veterans. It’s for this reason that we are committed to providing employment opportunities to former members of our armed forces. We currently have positions available in our NY, VA and NC offices for mechanics, drivers, equipment operators and laborers.

ROC ReferralsAnother couple rounds of applause were in order for Travis and Curtis as they both received their referral bonus when the friends they brought to Ruston Paving hit their one year anniversary.
We’ve said it before but it bears repeating, our employees are the best in the business and we’re always happy to reward those who make our team stronger!

Seneca County Courthouse (paving)Ruston Paving completed the paving on a multi-year reconstruction project at the Seneca County Courthouse. The general contractor, Frank J. Marianacci, needed our crews to install the asphalt binder and top course once the building renovations were finished.

Constructed between 1845 and 1860, the three government buildings that comprise the Seneca County Courthouse Complex are considered an architectural landmark. To most, however, they are known as The Three Bears.

Paving Chittenango High SchoolOur Syracuse crews took advantage of the fact that the Chittenango Central School District was on spring break to repave the high school. Ruston Paving was entrusted with the task of performing a complete 85,000 sq. ft. mill and overlay within the one-week break. This student/employee parking lot and the school’s bus loop had a whole new look by the time class was back in session. Though they were battling some April showers, our Syracuse crews did a magnificent job of working efficiently to complete this task on time.
