Project OverviewDescripción del proyecto

Emery Sapp & Sons (ESS) was named as the General Contractor for the Johnson County Rt 50 reconstruction project by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT). This MoDOT-designed project was almost entirely self-performed by ESS over a seven month period. The crew paved more than 123,000 tons of asphalt and preserved an additional 940,000 square yards of 3” milling. Sections of the existing pavement were in poor condition and littered with potholes. These inconsistencies grew deeper and posed increasing risk for each vehicle passing over. ESS crews created a smoother driving surface for the traveling public of Johnson County, ultimately protecting their safety and wellbeing.

In addition to benefiting the public, the Johnson County Rt 50 project provided a hefty amount of equipment hours for the crew. Mickey Mantle, Project Manager, shares, “This project provided an excess of recycled asphalt pavement which will help us to be more competitive on future projects.” Recycled asphalt pavement (RAP), or reclaimed asphalt pavement, is reprocessed materials that contains asphalt and aggregates. Recycling the pavement on-site provides a truckload of benefits like reducing landfill waste, monetary savings, protecting the environment, conserving natural resources, etc.

ESS crews worked hand-in-glove with MoDOT to ensure this project was completed on schedule. MoDOT’s vision for Rt 50 was clear from the start, allowing ESS to get the job done efficiently. In total, this pavement preservation project laid 123,000 tons of asphalt, 1,300 cubic yards of concrete, and 940,000 square yards of preserved pavement.
