City of Ballwin 2015 SAMI (Stress Absorbing Membrane Interlayer) – 2015

For the second year, West Contracting helped the City of Ballwin complete its annual SAMI project.  This includes placing a limestone chip seal over old concrete, and then installing a 2" hot mix asphalt overlay over the chip seal.  The thick placement of oil in the chip seal helps absorb movements from the concrete to hold back reflective cracking, as well as deter other cracks coming back through the new asphalt pavement.

Bellefontaine Cemetery Chip Seal – 2015

The oldest and most historic Cemetery in St. Louis, final resting place of Lewis & Clark, Adolphus Busch, and many others, was looking for a contractor to help chip seal approximately 25% of the roads winding through this beautiful cemetery.  West Contracting installed a 3/8" Granite trap rock chip seal to the contracted streets.  This is the most common chip seal stone in Missouri, known for its abrasive properties, longevity, and appealing look. 

City of Byrnes Mill Bridge Deck Milling and Chip Seal – Lower Byrnes Mill Road – 2015

Route AT (Franklin County) Cold In Place Recycling – 2015

West Contracting completed this project for MoDOT summer 2015.  We first milled off 1" of the entire roadway between the Union and Washington exits off of I-44.  After the milling, we used a 12.5' Wirtgen Rotomill/Cold In Place Recycling machine to mill and fractionate 5" of the existing roadway, blend this with an asphalt emulsion and water, and place this material into the hopper of a conventional asphalt paving machine.  The conventional paving machine then installs this material back onto the roadway to be compacted.  After the In Place Recycling was completed, we topped the roadway with 1" of a new hot mix asphalt surface course.  This process is used in rural areas to save taxpayer dollars on trucking tremendous amounts of material to and from the jobsite.

It saved money and increased the thickness of the base material under the new pavement.
