US 281 Project Visualization Animation
The US 281 North project begins at the Loop 1604 interchange with four new direct connector ramps from the Loop 1604 freeway lanes to the US 281 freeway lanes as the roadway heads north for 8-miles to the Bexar/Comal County Line. Continuous frontage road lanes provide local access and connect to the freeway lanes with on and off ramps. The freeway lanes cross over major local streets on bridges. Auxiliary lanes are also included to transition merging lanes into the freeway lanes throughout the corridor. This proposed design features two main lanes in each direction with High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and transit lanes that connect to VIA’s Stone Oak Park & Ride facility near Stone Oak Parkway.

Contractors behind collapsed bridge have projects in North Texas
The contractors behind the deadly Florida bridge collapse have also worked on several projects in North Texas, but nothing similar to that pedestrian bridge. Munilla Construction Management has an office in Irving and was the primary contractor for the expansion of U.S. Highway 75 in Collin County. That project started in 2014. It was to widen the six-lane freeway to eight lanes from Spring Creek Parkway to State Highway 121. It included improving frontage roads and ramps. The company's website also indicates it did concrete bridge repairs as part of the project. MCM has an office in Irving on Greenway Drive. Workers there said they are not making any comment regarding the company, its work in North Texas or on the Florida bridge collapse. READ MORE: Tearful families wait as bodies remain under failed bridge The North Texas office referred FOX 4 to its Miami headquarters for comment, where the only response thus far is a recorded message that expresses condolences to the victims' families. Regarding MCM projects in North Texas, TxDOT said it has “been proactively inspecting bridges in Texas for nearly 40 years. All public-use bridges in the state which carry vehicular traffic undergo periodic routine safety inspections every 24 months.” TxDOT also says MCM has other projects underway, including in Denton County with work estimated to go on until the year 2020. It is important to note that MCM is one of several contractors involved in these highway projects. FOX 4 News is a FOX-owned station serving Dallas-Fort Worth and all of North Texas.

How construction work zones are designed
There's no shortage of road construction this summer to slow drivers down. In Minnesota, the aging infrastructure makes construction a necessary nuisance and designing the layout of a construction work zone comes down to safety. The sea of orange construction cones on Minnesota freeways this summer makes some drivers see red. "You can't get home in a timely fashion, because traffic is messed up," said Robbinsdale driver Michael Williams. Judd Roby understand that frustration, but he also sees the other side of road construction. "Our roads were built in 1940 and 1950, and they're really in bad shape," said Roby. For more than twenty years, Judd Roby and Lynn Berg have been the men behind many of the signs you see when you enter a construction zone. "Our first package was given to the state of Minnesota in 1996, we started developing it in 1992," said Roby about his software development company. "It's the tools to develop those signs correctly and those work zones correctly." As owners of SignCAD Systems in Minnetonka, Roby and Berg developed ConeZONE and SignCAD. They're software programs used by state agencies, such as the Minnesota Department of Transportation, and construction companies across the country to plan and design the layout of work zones as well as the traffic signs within each project. Based on state standards, the software program determines everything from the speed limit in a work zone to how far the cones are spaced. Safety is the number one objective, yet accidents still occur. Last year in Minnesota work zones, there were 1,684 crashes and 10 fatalities. All of those fatalities were drivers and their passengers. "Be patient. Very, very patient, and we don't want any fatalities in a work zone," said Roby. Road construction can be a pain, but navigating through it is part of a design for better roads ahead.

Arlington Asphalt Driveway Repair
Arlington TX Asphalt Driveway Repair http://asphaltandpaving.txbizdirectory.com/arlington-asphalt-and-paving/ Choosing An Asphalt and Paving Company There are many factors that can affect the price and outcome of an asphalt paving undertaking,. Choosing the lowest bid is not always the best decision when choosing asphalt and paving contractor. The following will help you make an informed decision when choosing a paving contractor. Construction Worker during Asphalting Road Works For more information about : Arlington Texas Asphalt and Paving Companies Inviting, Attractive The appearance of your asphalt or paved driveway creates an impression about your home and way of living. An inviting driveway provides a focal point for passers-by and visitors approaching your home. And an attractive driveway, one with "curb appeal," adds value to your home investment. In fact, home buyers may even prejudge the upkeep and condition of the house based upon the upkeep of the driveway: "The condition of the driveway sets the tone for the condition of the home,” real estate agent Amanda Miller told The New York Times. So it is worthwhile to plan your driveway carefully. With asphalt as your material — and attention to design and construction — your driveway will provide years of lasting service and an excellent return on the investment. Quality Control Asphalt mixtures come in a wide variety of designs. Some mixtures are smoother on top than others; some have a higher content of asphalt cement than others. A special type of asphalt mixture can even be colored and imprinted to resemble paver blocks, combining a certain aesthetic appeal with the benefits of asphalt. Consult with your asphalt and paving contractor to assure that your mixture will provide the surface and performance factors you want. Unfortunately, not all consumers closely monitor their driveway design and construction. Getting multiple bids, if possible, and having the willingness to work with your builder or contractor to control quality will serve you well. How to Hire a Contractor All reputable asphalt and paving companies and contractors who seek your business in good faith will provide references and phone numbers of satisfied customers. Some firms even maintain a list of recent customers and phone numbers. A few quick calls will help protect your investment. Ask references about qualifications such as contractors' quality of work, attention to details, on-time performance, and ability to finish work completely. These suggestions are the same as recommended by the Better Business Bureau. Here are some other points to consider: Check gates for clearance; know who's responsible for re-hanging them, if necessary. Decide whether you, a plumber, or someone else will raise any water valves or sewer inlets to meet the new asphalt around them. Assign specific responsibilities and make notes. Surface drainage is very important. Make sure your contractor plans and builds adequate surface slopes to produce good drainage. So-called "ponding," or standing water, on or near the driveway, is undesirable. Once you have taken bids and selected the contractor you want, you’re ready for the contract. A construction contract should detail such items as the responsibility for grading work and accuracy, for compacting the subgrade and base, for measuring compacted asphalt and paving thicknesses, for pavement slopes and smoothness, payment schedule, and guarantee of the finished product. It’s important to make sure your contractor has adequate liability insurance. Ask for written proof of it. This directory contains Asphalt and Paving companies throughout Texas. Be sure to exercise your due diligence in choosing a company or contractor.

Fixing Roads After Historic Floods
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) Officials on both sides of the bay are talking dollar amounts and broken roads. Both Mobile and Baldwin County leaders are discussing how to get washed out roads fixed, and fast. Tuesday, the city council voted to speed up the process by accepting emergency bids and forgo advertising for repairs to Girby Road and McGregor Avenue. Fixing McGregor Avenue is the city's top priority. Road and pipe repairs are estimated to cost $100,000 to $125,000. Girby Road is next on the list with repairs estimated at $150,000 to $200,000. Parts of Museum Drive were also washed out during last week's storm, and repairs could cost the city up to $100,000. Mayor Sandy Stimpson said he's working closely with FEMA in hopes of getting federal assistance for the repairs. Stimpson hopes that in the future more city dollars are devoted to the city's streets, bridges and drainage systems. FEMA officials are still assessing damage. In order to receive money, the county as a whole has to reach a $1.6 million dollar damage threshold. City leaders say we should know if we qualify for assistance sometime this week. Whether we get the money or not, repairs on McGregor Avenue could begin as soon as next week and will take about four weeks to complete.
