Projects

The road best traveled is the one that has a Rock Solid foundation

From start to finish—by using innovative and forward thinking methods, utilizing new technologies, making sure that what we do is environmentally responsible, and by value-engineering each project to achieve the best outcomes for every one of our customers—we are leading the way toward a future that is absolutely Rock Solid.

CASE STUDIES

Cook County, Orland Park – FDR (Full Depth Reclamation)

Full-depth reclamation was chosen over a more traditional remove and replace approach because deep underlying pavement problems could be resolved and structural performance targets could be met at a fraction of the cost.

  • 98% - 99% Fewer
    Semi Truck Loads
  • 20% - 60%
    Less Time
  • 45% - 53%
    Cost Savings

Northern Illinois Medical Center – Soil Stabilization

By choosing soil stabilization over undercutting, Rock Solid was able to build a structurally superior road on a budget that was controlled, in a way that significantly reduced any impact on the environment.

  • Less fuel consumed from hauling off spoils or importing virgin stone
  • Accelerated the work schedule
  • Increased structural coefficient values by 0.84
