Innovative Design Boasts Sustainability

This sustainable design used full depth reclamation for the repaving at Kaufman Lake in Champaign, Ill.  From a sustainability standpoint, by utilizing full depth reclamation, the roadway improvements reused the old paving material and no paving material from the project ended up in a landfill.  Existing paving, sub-base and sub-grade were used in rebuilding the roadway.

The sustainable engineering design used 93% fewer trucks, 83% less fuel and 93% less roadway material.  Construction management allowed this six-week paving project to be completed in just 10 days.  Sustainable engineering and construction management saved approximately $90,000 in repaving costs.

The photos below depict various stages of construction from surveying to final paving and illustrate the process used in this innovative solution.
