Construction continues on Route 97 in Groveland, Massachusetts. Bayside’s design improvements include: roadway reconstruction, sidewalk reconstruction, ADA compliant wheelchair ramps, on-roadway drainage improvements, new signage, and pavement markings.
Based on the type of project, the methods Bayside’s design specified were able to pass along a cost savings of almost $200,000 to our client.
One of the methods was the newly MassDOT approved full-depth reclamation (FDR) with injected asphalt stabilization. “Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) with Injected Asphalt Stabilization is an engineered road rehabilitation process used much like traditional full depth reclamation. The difference between the processes is that by combining injected asphalt emulsion with the reclaimed pavement and base materials, a homogeneous and bound base layer is created. This creates a flexible base with increased structural capacity and greater fatigue resistance compared to an unstabilized reclaimed base.” Baystate Roads Blog, June 28, 2016
