The I-85 corridor in Greensboro is one of the most heavily traveled and frequently congested sections of Interstate in North Carolina. A key intersection along that corridor is the South Elm-Eugene Street area located south of downtown Greensboro.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation contracted with Penhall to rehabilitate the pavement on this corridor. During Penhall’s rehab operation, they discovered the considerable deterioration in the existing drainage collars protecting the highway’s inlet structures.
Knowing that smooth traffic flow with minimal disruption is imperative along I-85, Penhall reached out to Carolina Environmental Contracting for the task of rebuilding the concrete drainage collars to properly drain stormwater from the highway. After all, managing groundwater becomes an important aspect of preserving the new pavement. And managing stormwater is just one of CEC’s specialties.
This was not the first Penhall-CEC partnership. Penhall has subcontracted CEC for sediment control and stormwater management tasks on other public highway projects. Our thanks and appreciation to Penhall.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
