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.
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!

Fort Lee Baptist ChurchRuston Paving was contacted directly by the Fort Lee Baptist Church, near the Richmond Airport, to reconstruct its parking lot.  A church representative gave us numerous compliments on the crews’ professionalism, work ethic, and safety measures.  He made a point to say that both our foremen took the time to answer his questions in the field and treated him with respect and courtesy, even when they were in the middle of something.  This type of courtesy goes a long way, and it did not go unnoticed.  Hats off to the crews – you are what sets us apart from our competition!

Cookout (finished)Ruston Paving was contracted by Qualified Builders to pave the new Cook Out restaurant in Mechanicsville.  We have completed numerous projects with Qualified Builders out of our Durham North Carolina division and are excited to extend the relationship into Virginia.

This project was on a fast track schedule and the crews worked above and beyond to get the job completed.  Nice work by everyone involved!

Willow Lawn (demo and grading)One of our grading crews is pictured removing some old landscape islands and preparing the new parking lot that we’re scheduled to pave. The Shoppes at Willow Lawn is always busy and is currently undergoing a complete exterior renovation and expansion. Part of the project involved adjusting the drive lanes to improve traffic flow.

Ruston Paving was contracted by L.F. Jennings, with whom we have a long-standing relationship throughout Northern and Central Virginia. Our North Carolina divisions have also worked with the owners, Federal Realty Investment Trust, on past projects. Everyone on this project has been impressed with our crews, quality of work, and attention to detail.

Snowing in NYFixing a Paver

The weather outside might be frightful – our Syracuse office wins the prize as over 3 feet of snow has fallen there in the past week. However, inside all our shops, our mechanics are diligently servicing and repairing our equipment as they prepare our fleet for the upcoming paving season. The construction season certainly takes its toll on all things mechanical. Thankfully our Ruston Paving shop personnel have the know-how to get things in tip-top shape.

Hatcher LoftsOne of our paving crews is seen here installing the asphalt pavement for the new development called Hatcher Flats. The new apartment complex is located in Manchester, near downtown Richmond.  Ruston Paving was contracted by Hercules Contracting, who was working for Genesis Properties.  Our crew did a fantastic job of finishing the work before the bad weather set in.

A large consumer goods manufacturer in the Richmond area had plans to remove and replace some failing areas of a large parking lot. During conversations with the project’s general contractor about the scope of work, we suggested a full depth reclamation (FDR) option that would save the company both time and money while still maintaining their tight schedule.

While they were initially unfamiliar with FDR, our experience with and explanation of the process gave them the piece of mind to move forward with the value engineering option. As usual, our Ruston Paving crews did not disappoint as the project turned out beautifully and lived up to all expectations. Ruston Paving certainly looks forward to working with them on future improvements throughout their campus.
