About This Project

PROJECT: Yuma East Wetlands RCC Paved Hike and Bike Trails
OWNER: City of Yuma
DESIGNER: Triguna Israel
PAVING MACHINE: Vogele Super 2100 High Density Screed Paver
MIXING PLANT: Rapidmix 400, Continuous Mixing Plant
PROJECT DETAILS: The City of Yuma wanted build a budget friendly, environmentally sound pathway for bicyclists, walkers, and joggers on top of the Canal. Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavement(RCC) has a lower cost compared to conventional concrete and is not oil-based like asphalt, making it the perfect solution for hiking Yuma’s 400 acres of restored wetlands. The 5 inch thick RCC was paved on compacted sub-grade with limited work zone space adjacent to the paver.  Roller-Compacted Concrete – RCC paved hike and bike trails offer a safe and cost effective solution to communities world-wide.  See below for additional benefits and projects on the ACPA RCC Explorer.
