Shinglehouse, PA (PRWEB) October 21, 2013
Wayne Companies will be installing a new roller compacted concrete road in the city of Olean, N.Y. as part of the overhaul of the Buffalo Street underpass.
Buffalo Street is one of three primary roads in and out of Olean. The existing pavement for the two lane road was eight inches of Portland cement concrete located adjacent to the Dresser-Rand plant. This concrete pavement is celebrating its 50th year in existence this summer as it was constructed in 1963.
The pavement has reached the end of its life service, so it was decided that full reconstruction was going to be needed. The question became how to reconstruct this section with minimal disruption of traffic and ensure a structurally equivalent replacement to the concrete pavement that had worked so well.
Wayne Companies, true innovators in the use of construction materials in the Southwestern part of New York State, proposed using eight inches of roller compacted concrete with 1.5 inch hot mixed asphalt-wearing course. This hybrid design will give the city both the long-term strength of concrete and the smooth ride and ease of maintenance of the hot mixed asphalt surface.
Wayne Stephen and his wife, Lisa, built Wayne Companies together in the 1980s in the Southern Tier and northwestern Pennsylvania. Wayne Companies has paved the way for several successful projects with roller compacted concrete. When Tom Windus, Public Works Director for the City of Olean, was evaluating different maintenance, repair and replacement options for the Buffalo Street underpass, he reached out to Wayne Companies, based on a long and mutually beneficial relationship with them. Their input has been valued, as the project has some requirements that make the remediation process and choice of construction materials very important.
