Piedmont Paving, Inc. Roundabouts
The Asphalt Contractor - May 2019 Addition
Constructing a roundabout amidst an operating roadway can be one of the more challenging efforts a paving contractor can face. Piedmont Paving, Inc, Newnan, GA, faced not only one but two roundabout challenges about 600 fee apart at two three-way T intersections.
Piedmont Paving, Inc. Recognized For Local Roundabout Project
Newnan Times Herald - August 26, 2018
Work on two miniature roundabouts on U.S. Highway 29 wrapped up Friday – a mere three weeks after the project started.
Crews from Piedmont Paving Inc. were finishing up final paving of the second roundabout, at the intersection of Hwy. 29 and Greentop Road, Friday, and were painting temporary stripes on the roadway.
Permanent pavement marking will take a few weeks, as thermoplastic striping can only be applied after asphalt has cured for several days, according to the contractor.
Work on the project began Aug. 6, and the contractors were given 90 days to complete the job, according to Kimberly Larson, regional spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation. The project is overseen and funded by GDOT.
