Perpetual Pavement Saves Caltrans $19M in Initial Project Costs

This $270 Million project, constructed in a joint venture by Granite Construction and Teichert, is the renovation of a 15.3 mile stretch of aged concrete pavement in Sacramento County, CA. The section runs from downtown Sacramento (American River Bridge) to 1.1 miles south of Elk Grove. Besides converting the existing pavement to a L-L/PP, other aspects, such as widened lanes, added HOV lanes, bridge work, median barrier, pedestrian crossing, and information systems were part of the contract. Both full-depth (FD) and the crack, seat, and overlay (CS&O) were utilized to create perpetual pavements.
