Project: San Pablo Rd Improvements
Location: Jacksonville, FL
Company: City of Jacksonville
Completion Date: February 2016
In February 2016, Preferred Materials provided more than 500 tons of asphalt to the City of Jacksonville in order to create a smoother transition onto two bridge decks where its footings had settled at different elevations. The task was achieved by profile milling for tie-in locations; including approach slabs, leveling asphalt and a final surface lift, as well as expansion joint sealing and striping after final paving was performed.
San Pablo Road is well-known to those who travel to the Jacksonville Beaches. Over time, the roadway settled at a different elevations, which proved to be hazardous. Accidents and vehicle damage became too common for the area. The much needed improvement project proved to be a relief to residents, and Preferred Materials was praised in a local Jacksonville newspaper for a job well done.
The Arlington is a new luxury resort-style continuing care retirement community which required Preferred Materials to provide 25,000 cubic yards of concrete and a wide array of structural concrete mix designs.
In mid-October 2014, Preferred Materials, Inc. began a 4-mile resurfacing project of Pelican Bay Blvd. in Naples, FL.
Preferred Materials, Inc recently supplied over 6000 cubic yards of our specialty product DrainReady for use in the beach parking lots on Siesta Key.
