Sloan Construction Company began work in May 2010 on a project along I-26 in Clinton, SC, for the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT). The job was part of the Federal ARRA Stimulus Program, and will require 350,000 tons of asphalt to complete. The project consists of Cross Slope rehabilitation with safety corrections for 16 miles of interstate roadway, which includes shoulder work, bridge jacking, milling, resurfacing and grading.
To complete the Cross Slope corrections, Sloan Construction and Holland Surveyors, LLC surveyed the entire surface, and designed the final elevations to drain correctly, fulfill a two percent cross slope, and incorporate safety drainage/positive separation features. This attention to detail and precision engineering was required to meet stringent SCDOT Tolerance Levels. As the prime contractor, Sloan was responsible for collecting the elevation data at the edge of each travel lane at 100-foot stations, and 50 foot stations in curves, and super-elevations for every lift of asphalt.
While the project schedule has a projected completion date of November 30, 2012, Sloan Construction anticipates an early completion this summer.
