In areas of AC surfaces, work consists of milling to a depth of I" to 2"; cleaning and routing of deteriorated pavement joints, potholes, tar patches, striping, and filling with asphalt materials; adjusting any necessary manholes and boxes to grade; applying tack coat; and laying AC surface course.  An indefinite quantity of projects are possible under this contract, based on orders issued (maximum $20M; minimum $I00K) during the term for each period. 67,277 tons of asphalt have been installed to-date under this contract.

 

Project Significance

Due to the complexity and confined, aging infrastructure of the city, this repair work is continual, challenging, and sometimes with as little as 4 hours advance notice to commence work. With efficiency and precision, Fort Myer safely navigates the confined work spaces with large equipment and materials. ​
