Late Season Work opens HOV lane

Sac50According to KCRA, Drivers on the congested Highway 50 corridor have relief thanks to late season paving with Evotherm warm mix asphalt. As a result of funding issues that altered the scope of project, Caltrans changed paving strategies to an asphalt rubber open graded friction course (RHMA-O) directly on portland cement concrete.  They required the contractor, DeSilva Gates, to use warm mix asphalt in the RHMA-O that was placed at night in October. Granite Construction supplied the mix with Evotherm.

Caltrans opened the 7.5-mile stretch of a new high-occupancy vehicle lane on eastbound Highway 50 between Watt Avenue and Sunrise Boulevard. According to Caltrans, bus/carpool lanes typically carry two to three times more people at peak traffic hours than conventional mixed-flow lanes.
