US 78 SCDOT

About This Project

PROJECT: US 78, Ladsen, South Carolina
OWNER: South Carolina Department of Transportation
DESIGNER: SCDOT, Andy Johnson
GENERAL CONTRACTOR: Banks Construction Co.
COMPLETION DATE: 2009

PROJECT DETAILS: The SCDOT was having a significant problem with asphalt rutting on high traffic US 78 near Charleston. The existing roadway was built on poor soils and SCDOT needed a durable pavement option which could be placed quickly and minimize traffic disruption. A 10” single lift RCC layer with a 2” asphalt surface fit their needs perfectly.
