McAshan Road, McCalla, AL

A.G Peltz Company placed 9,727 square yards for ALDOT on McAshan Road in McCalla, AL. The project was the inaugural RCC project for ALDOT on a travel lane. The existing HMA roadway was experiencing significant distress from repeated heavy truck loads. Both the Jefferson County Industrial Park and Norfolk Southern McCalla Intermodal Facility utilize this route for access to Interstate 20/59. ALDOT was looking for a high structural value pavement which could withstand heavy loads and still allow interrupted access. Placing a single lift 10” RCC in one lift was the solution ALDOT needed.
