Streets & Local Roads

Streets built with concrete are built to last, consider concrete for your next project

Concrete...Its not just for sidewalks

What picture comes to into your mind when you think of a sidewalk? What picture comes to your mind when you think of a street? They are probably as different as white and black. Perhaps its time to change that mindset.

As the motoring public we should all be interested in getting the most return for our tax dollar when it comes to construction projects like streets and roads. That means using materials that are strong and durable, that means using concrete.

This website (and this page in particular) contains information that allows the person responsible for constructing, preserving, or repairing streets and roads to make informed decisions.

Concrete can play a key role in transforming cities and towns into beautiful, exciting, thriving areas that support the environment, as well as benefiting residents, businesses, and the community. Concrete’s natural reflectance brightens roadways, parking areas, and sidewalks. It looks cleaner and stays clean-looking longer than any other construction materials.

Decorative and colored concrete pavements are breathing new life into urban areas, increasing civic pride. Red-colored, stamped concrete is used to simulate brick in crosswalks or otherwise to create decorative patterns, which enhance the appearance of the cityscape.

Concrete, It Just Makes Cents!
