Improvements

Robert E. Lee Boulevard to Amethyst Street.

overview

The Impetus’ Infrastructure team transformed a potholed, poorly draining street into a smooth and safe roadway. 

The overall project encompassed removing 170,000-square-feet of the existing composite roadway and replacing it with an asphalt roadway.

To begin the reconstruction work, the team first removed 27,000-cubic-yards of excavation.  Next, over 4,500-linear-feet of new waterlines, 8,900-linear-feet of storm drainage, and

 

3,500-linear-feet of sanitary sewer was installed.  To rebuild the roadway, 12,000-tons of limestone and 14,000-cubic-yards of sand were installed and then topped with 7,500-tons of asphalt cement concrete paving and 3 miles of pavement striping.
