  • Asphalt laying

Location:

Papineauville

Years:

2011 - 2012

In 2011, Roxboro was hired by the Ministère des Transports du Québec as a general contractor for overpass and storm sewer construction in addition to earthmoving and paving. The job was carried out in the section of Highway 50 located between Fasset and Papineauville in Quebec’s Outaouais region.

For this project, Roxboro was in charge of paving 22 km of the highway, an overhead crossing and three bridges and overpasses. The company installed its mobile plant mid-project and laid nearly 150 000 tonnes of asphalt between May 2011 and July 2012.

Bad weather conditions presented a major challenge in this project and resulted in the tightening of the initial deadline. To make up for lost time and finish on schedule, Roxboro employed two full-time teams, 24 hours a day for six days.
