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.

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.

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.

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.

Kennametal (FDR)Ruston Paving was contacted by Kennemetal to reconstruct its aging parking lot. Over the years, the pavement structure had failed and there were serious drainage issues that needed to be addressed. After listening to the engineering manager on site, we suggested the full depth reclamation process. This process would provide a strong subbase and allow us to reshape the parking, thereby eliminating the drainage problems. The entire lot was then paved with two lifts of hot mix asphalt.

While on site, all of our employees noticed Kennametal’s safety banner touting 100 Reasons To Be 100% Safe. It’s nice to work with a company that shares Ruston Paving’s commitment to working safely!
