  • Telegraph & Square Lake

    What We Did


    Ajax Paving received the APAM Award of Merit at this year’s APAM/MDOT Asphalt Paving Awards program for its work on Telegraph and Square Lake in Oakland County for Urban Streets Projects. The project was a single course overlay that included construction/reconstruction of curbs, gutters, and manholes.


    Project Highlights:

    • 20,000 tons of HMA
  • 19 Mile Rd

    What We Did


    This project for the Macomb County Road Commission resurfaced 19 Mile road between Romeo Plank and Hayes roads. We milled three inches of deteriorated concrete, patched the concrete foundation as needed, replaced concrete curbs, and upgraded ADA Handicap Ramps. The Ajax team placed two courses of 5E10 Modified Asphalt Wearing Mix and finished with landscaping and permanent striping.

    A key component of this project was an accelerated schedule to ensure completion by the beginning of the public school year in September. Not only did Ajax meet this requirement, but the project also earned a 2016 APAM Award of Excellence for Urban Streets.


    Project Highlights:

    • Met accelerated project schedule
    • 13,200 tons 5E10 Modified Asphalt Wearing Mix
    • 2016 APAM Award of Excellence for Urban Streets
  • M-59

    What We Did


    A two-course overlay of existing concrete, this 4-mile long project spanned M-59 from I-75 to Crooks Road, a heavily traveled commuter route. During the first phase, we discovered the concrete was in worse shape than anticipated, increasing the concrete patching and asphalt repair work almost tenfold.

    Before placing the leveling course of asphalt, a substantial asphalt wedge course — up to 8 inches deep — was placed to bring the cross slopes and super elevated sections up to Michigan Department of Transportation standards. A total of 3.5 inches of asphalt was placed over the entire freeway. More than 120,000 tons of asphalt were manufactured at the Crooks Road Plant for this project. 


    Project Highlights:

    • Project completed ahead of schedule
    • More than 120,000 tons of asphalt manufactured and placed
    • 3.5 inches of asphalt placed over the 4-mile stretch
  • I-75 Giddings to Clintonville Rd

    What We Did


    This 4.71-mile resurfacing project on I-75 consisted of a 2-inch thick overlay of the three travel lanes (north and south), a 2-inch thick overlay of on/off ramps, and a 2-inch thick overlay on the freeway shoulders. Two lanes were composite pavement, and one was concrete pavement. Over 53,000 lineal feet of pavement joint and crack repair was completed along with the installation of 45,918 tons of HMA. The project was completed within a nightly 8-hour time window that was strictly enforced.

    Ajax earned incentives for mixture quality, mat density, and joint density. Michigan Department of Transportation ride quality requirements for single course overlays (without milling) resulted in a 25 percent improvement in ride quality. Because work was performed at night, traffic control and safety were of high importance.


    Project Highlights:

    • Project completed on time and within nightly speci?ed-time restrictions.
    • 25 percent improvement in ride quality
    • Over 53,000 lineal feet of pavement completed along with installation of 45,918 tons of HMA
