Project Description

This project consisted of reconstructing the existing road, which was located in a very saturated wetland and had shown signs of settling and deterioration. We replaced the base of the existing roadway with Styrofoam blocks (expanded polystyrene fill) that allowed the roadway to “float” over the marshland and act as a bridge between the unsuitable soils. We then backfilled and repaved the roadway with asphalt pavement.
