The 2013 Concrete Quality Excellence Award

“The 2013 Concrete Quality Excellence Award, less than $20 million goes to Golden Triangle Construction Company, Imperial PA, for their Charles Town Route 9 Bypass, Charles Town in Jefferson County,” Snyder said. “The $13.2 million project involved approximately 3 miles of four lane of cement concrete paving with shoulders.  The project used an accelerated schedule of five, 10-hour shifts to six, 10-hours shifts in order to keep schedule. “

The project also used stringless technology and the subbase and the cement treated permeable base was placed using an ABG Hi-Density Paver.  This provided 90-95 percent compaction prior to placing a smooth drum roller to compact the material.  The roll down to achieve the proper compaction was minimized, causing the grade to be much more accurate.  The notice to proceed was given February 4, 2012.  The September 30 completion date was moved to November 14 due to a weather delay from Hurricane Sandy.  CAWV material suppliers include Aggregate Industries and Essroc.

Golden Triangle Paves the Way for RCC Use on Western PA Roads

ArticleRCCRoller Compacted Concrete offers tremendous opportunity for our industry. It may be used in commercial, industrial or street and local road applications. Before it can be used in the latter market, industry must be sure that PennDot will accept it as a paving alternative. Golden Triangle Consruction has been working very hard toward that goal, and they’ve placed RCC at some of their plants for material storage.

The company recently has the opportunity to work with PennDot District 11, paving a section of road shoulder on State Route 910. Working in conjunction with the department’s ETI division, a change order was processed to allow the placement of RCC directly over the existing asphalt shoulder. The RCC placement was 10 feet wide and 1,817 feet long.

Produced in a central mix plant 20 miles from the site, Tri-axle dump trucks delivered 10 yard quantities of the material to the jobsite. Placement of the RCC was facilitated with a high density paving machine that produced 98 percent compaction directly out of the paver and before roller compaction. Compaction is seen as a key element in the placement of quality RCC. Following installation, the material was sprayed with white pigmented curing compound to ensure proper curing.

Because PennDot is using the project for research, they will revisit the site periodically for the next three years for inspections. Industry will continue to work with the department on this technology in the hopes of accelerating the decision making process.
