Front/Mill/Stedman Street Improvements

Ketchikan Mill Stedman Front proHNS Improvements

Location: Ketchikan, AK
Project Dates: 2018
Owner: AK DOT&PF

For this multi-street project, our Materials Testing Technician tested aggregates, concrete, and asphalt paving both in the field and in the DOT&PF laboratory. They also performed construction inspection duties, filling out daily reports and coordinating directly with the DOT&PF Project Engineer. In an effort to extend the road’s life in high-traffic areas, the Contractor used Superpave asphalt for the wearing course, a specialty mix design our Materials Testing Technician was uniquely qualified to evaluate. The project also involved replacement of the Camp Creek Bridge’s asphalt deck with a modified polymer concrete to relieve some of the strain put on the 100-year-old bridge.
