Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2011
Spragues’ Ready Mix Concrete in Southern California has just completed a series of high profile decorative concrete projects for Caltrans throughout the Los Angeles metro area. Caltrans is the state agency responsible for highway, bridge, and rail transportation planning, construction, and maintenance and manages more than 50,000 miles of California's highway and freeway lanes. Excited to have been part of these latest California highway improvements, Spragues’ was selected for the project based on their experience, expertise and their ability to produce specialty concrete mixes for these unique applications.
The decorative concrete projects were completed throughout Southern California in conjunction with Baltazar Construction of Covina, Ca. To complete the projects, Spragues’ Ready Mix needed to create a specially engineered decorative concrete mixture that included Adobe colored concrete. The new concrete placements are adjacent to the highway and are designed to give Cal-Trans a decorative paved area, which is easily maintained. The projects add a new vitality to the states roadways and help facilitate maintenance of the states highway system.
Baltazar Construction was responsible for the placing and finishing of the stamped concrete. The projects faced many logistic challenges due to high volumes of traffic. To resolve these issues, the contractor had to place much of the concrete at night in order to mitigate the problems of heavy traffic. Nevertheless, the workmanship on these pours is of the highest quality of decorative stamped concrete and will benefit the Southern California community for years to come.
The finished concrete products can be seen in person in many Southern California cities, including Pasadena, Los Angeles, Fullerton and San Bernardino. Photos of the projects can be seen online at http://www.srmconcrete.com.
