Delaware and Ottawa County, Oklahoma
ESS Asphalt was contracted to rehabilitate a stretch of highway in Delaware County, Oklahoma. This project was going to significantly improve the longevity of this particular stretch of highway. Due to the structure of this portion of the highway, our team decided to use the notched wedge method, which is a tapered longitudinal joint. The premise behind this particular technique is to increase the longevity of the road in question.
Owner Oklahoma Department of Transportation
ESS' Role Primary Contractor
Duration 10 Days
Scope of Work
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation contracted ESS knowing that we are experts in the field. Our ESS crew has never performed the notched wedge technique before this project, so one of the many challenges they had to overcome was learning a whole new piece of equipment in a matter of hours in order to finish this project on time.
Mid July also brings a host of difficulties such as weekend lake traffic. Our guys worked tirelessly to make sure we controlled the immense amount of traffic at the Highway 10 and Highway 25 intersection. We were able to clearly direct traffic, and deliver this project under budget and on time.
