Completed Projects


Evan Hewes Highway from SR 111 to SR115




The Project consists of the rehabilitation of 5.5 miles of Evan Hewes highway and is located in Imperial County California. The rehabilitation consisted of micromilling the thermal/raised cracking in the traveled ways (2 lanes east and west), turn pockets and medians. 3/8” asphalt aggregate rubberized membrane (ARAM) was placed directly on top of the micromilled surface to minimize reflective cracking. 1.5” of rubberized asphalt concrete (RAC) was placed in 1 lift and compacted.
