ROADS, DRIVEWAYS & CULVERTS

Roads, Driveways & Culverts

The basic function of a road and/or driveway is to provide easy access to your property. Access to a construction site is an immediate necessity which aids in the procurement and distribution of all materials, equipment, and resources required to effectively maximize productivity on the jobsite. This is why the installation of appropriate roads, driveways and culverts is one of the first priorities deemed necessary when starting any project.

Other reasons why the right driveway, road, or culvert is an absolute must for your project include the following:

Materials

Every project has its own unique characteristics which set it apart from any other. However, there are standards that apply to many projects. Below is a list of materials most commonly used during the installation of a road and/or driveway.

Base Materials -

The installation of a solid road or driveway is just as important as the integrity of a house pad. Your road base must be able to continuously support heavy traffic in any kind of weather. The following materials are appropriate options used to support and enhance the foundation of both roads and driveways: stabilized sand, fly ash, lime, engineered select fill, clay, geo-textile or geo-matt fabric.

Top Layer Materials -

Unlike the base materials that need to be molded and compressed into one solid mass, the final or top layer materials need to consist of solid, individual pieces of angular aggregates which can be spread across the base for added strength, durability and traction. The following materials listed cover the base and act as a sealant when crushed: concrete, granite, limestone, asphalt.

Note: The materials we use come from 100% recycled materials and provide a green, eco-friendly alternative which helps preserve our natural resources.

Prior to starting construction, we walk the proposed site with the landowner to address all relevant details necessary to ensure a properly constructed road that fulfills the customer's expectations.

We then mark the perimeters of the construction site, checking the site location for insufficient soils or other obstacles that could affect the stability and longevity of the road.

All the underground utility lines buried within the immediate area of the construction site are located and marked.

We clear the marked area of any vegetative debris including roots. Debris left behind will decay and eventually leave voids causing potholes or other obstacles and destroy the integrity of the road.

Select fill is added to the road surface in single units called lifts. Each lift is compacted before additional lifts are added, ultimately building up the road height to an acceptable elevation.

Working from the middle of the road, a very gradual downward slope is scraped off the foundation base on both sides creating a crown which covers the entire width and extends the length of the road or drive. This is done to allow for proper drainage and helps extend the life of the road.

A dozer is used to spread the top layer of aggregate evenly across the surface of the road.

After the aggregate is applied in a thick, even layer, a roller is used to compact the rock into the foundation base by fusing the layers and producing a durable smooth and cohesive road surface.
