Crack, Seat and Overlay Pavement
From Diablo Road north to Rudgear Road:
. Existing concrete pavement will be mechanically cracked across all freeway lanes.
. Seating ensures the best possible foundation for asphalt overlay.
. Mainline and shoulders will then be paved with rubberized asphalt.

"Green" Project
. We're using rubberized asphalt derived from tires destined for the land fill.
. The demolished concrete can be recycled and crushed for future use as base material.
. Existing trees will preserved and protected to the maximum extent possible.
. Areas under new guardrail will treated with landscape fabric and concrete to eliminate weed growth. This will eliminate the need to use herbicides for fire control.
. All environmentally sensitive areas and ornamental landscaped areas will be marked and protected.
All areas subject to erosion during construction will be treated to eliminate sediment from reaching storm drains and waterways.
