The American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA) and the Utah Department of Transportation presented West Valley City with a paving award for The Fairbourne Station Phase I roadways. West Valley City was recognized for the best Portland Cement Concrete Pavement Municipal Streets Project under 5,000 square feet. The project consisted of constructing two new roads, Weigh Station Road and Three Mill Lane, and rebuilding Market Street. The City contracted with M.C. Green & Sons to perform the work, which took approximately 3 months to complete the entire project.
According to the Industrial Resources Council, a Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement project refers to the use of a concrete surface as the driving surface for traffic. Typically the concrete used in PCC pavement projects is modified with additional materials that can increase the strength and durability of the cement at a lower cost. The Industrial Resources Council states that using PCC pavements has environmental impacts along with the enhanced performance of the material. PCC pavement projects can reduce the amount of natural resources used and the amount of landfill space used and the concrete can be recycled.
