Mobile County, Ala., has an ongoing program, known as the Pay-As-You-Go road building program, that has been in existence for approximately 30 years. The goal of this program is to pave all the dirt roads in the county. All of the engineering, design, construction oversight, and construction testing are performed by consultants with offices located in Mobile County. This particular project is typical of the program and consisted of realigning, grading and paving three short dirt roads.
The Mobile County Public School System is the largest public school system in the State of Alabama. Over the last several years it has experienced considerable growth. This is one of three new schools built in the last four years. Terracon provided the geotechnical, Special Inspections, and construction materials engineering and testing services on this project.
This project involved replacing existing storm and sanitary sewers and repaving the street in an older section of Mobile, Ala. The Mobile Area Water and Sewer System (MAWSS) has an ongoing program to upgrade the older sanitary and storm sewers throughout the city. On many of the projects, such as this one, the City of Mobile coordinates with MAWSS and provides funding to pave the entire street instead of the more traditional method of just repaving the sewer cuts.
