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.

United Rentals - Aerial YardThe aerial yard at United Rentals’ Herndon facility needed to be reconstructed and repaved. Because this lot acts as a main hub for all their Northern Virginia aerial lift equipment, hitting the project deadline was paramount. A portion of the lot was reconstructed in-place by using our full depth reclamation process while the rest of the area received a shim and overlay. Our Ruston Paving crews performed all the work in 5 working days to minimize disruption and get them back open for business.

Special thanks to United Rentals’ facility manager, who was able to take this picture from one of their man-lifts. Everyone at United Rentals was impressed with our crews and very pleased with the finished product. Great team effort all around to get the job done!

Glenwood Square (pulverization)Ruston Paving crews from our Durham division have been busy working on a 5 phase project at Glenwood Square Shopping Center. Due to the shopping center’s high traffic volume, we were unable to work or have any lots closed down on the weekend. The anchor store, Fresh Market, also sees a 35% increase in sales after Halloween, so we will not be able to work on this project after October 30th. Suffice it to say, this is a high pressure job that requires a coordinated effort from all involved.

We have used a combination of asphalt milling and paving in the interior roads and full depth reclamation in the parking lots to renovate the center. Unfortunately, fallout from Hurricane Joaquin dampened our ability to finish everything this season but we’ll be back in the spring to finish the final phase.

Deep River Office ParkChildress Klein, one of the largest real estate firms in the Southeast, contracted Ruston Paving to remove the old pavement at their Deep River Office Park property  and install a new surface course. Once our crews assembled on-site and the existing pavement was removed, we found that the subbase lacked the proper strength and should also be replaced.

By using the full depth reclamation process, we were able to transform the deteriorated parking area into one that will last for years to come!

Saddle Club TownhomesRuston Paving was certainly up to the challenge when Saddle Club Townhomes decided to reconstruct 8 of its 17 parking areas. The residents were very understanding as they were asked to park in alternate areas while our crews pulverized, stabilized and paved their lots.

Initially, the repair process of asphalt milling and paving was considered by the owner, Dawn Home Management; however, when concerns about the base were voiced, the full depth reclamation (FDR) process was suggested and agreed upon as it would save both time and money when compared to traditional reconstruction methods. DHM has been so pleased they’re considering reconstructing the remaining lots next year!

The newly paved road at Keswick Estates overlooking the historic Keswick Hall and their renowned golf course is truly breathtaking.  This project consisted of FDR for this entire road with patching and overlay throughout the rest of the neighborhood.  The crews worked relentlessly to keep the job site safe and clean while paying attention to detail as they worked through the rolling hills of the golf course and alongside the practice greens.  Ruston Paving has received numerous compliments from the home owners, property managers, and engineers for our quality of work, organization of the job site, and most importantly the professionalism of all our crews.  Great work all around and many thanks to all who traveled down/up to make this project successful – it was a true team effort!

ImagePress (FDR)Ruston Paving’s Syracuse crews, with help from some key Rochester employees, did a fantastic job reconstructing this distressed parking lot for Image Press, a nationally recognized digital printing company. The entire property is located in a very wet area in the Town of Cicero; however, by utilizing a full depth reclamation process with Portland cement, we were able to stabilize the lot and provide a finished product that will serve them for years to come.

Paving Garrett Farms Tennis CourtsGarrett Farms, a large subdivision in Durham County, had two tennis courts that were in dire need of repair due to root and water damage.

Ruston Paving was contracted by North State Resurfacing, the general contractor of the project, to pulverize the existing courts and a portion of the subbase. We then mixed Portland cement into the blended material to stabilize the subbase.  After that was complete, we placed and compacted 4″ of crushed stone and 3″ of surface asphalt pavement mix in two lifts.

Once the color coating, fencing and nets are installed, the residents will be able to garner years of enjoyment from their new courts!

FDR at Days Inn (Durham)After completing interior renovations, the Days Inn of Durham was ready to fix their 20+ year old parking lot.  Pictured is a crew from Ruston Paving’s Durham division that is completing the process of full depth reclamation (FDR) on the failing lot.  The FDR process allowed us to repair the entire pavement section and correct the drainage issues onsite.  We were able to work with the customer and phase the project to keep the active hotel up and running.

The owner has been very impressed with the professionalism of our crews and quality of the work.

Millbrook Exchange (milling)The Millbrook Collection shopping center was in need of some pavement repair. Our project management team met with representatives from Rivercrest Realty, Millbrook’s property management company, and it was determined that only the surface course of asphalt needed to be replaced. So our crews milled off the deteriorated pavement and installed a new lift of asphalt. The project was completed in stages so as not to interrupt the public’s access to the stores.

We are proud to have Rivercrest Realty as one of our repeat customers and look forward to working with them on future projects.
