The asphalt paving experts at Finley Asphalt & Concrete performed a neighborhood rehabilitation project for a community in Centreville, VA, including milling and paving the roads and trails and ensuring better drainage with French drain installation and curb and gutter replacements.
Our crew has worked in the Centreville community in the past, previously milling and paving a different section of town so they knew they could trust us to help out with this project. The roads were showing significant signs of water damage due to numerous drainage issues throughout. The curbs were damaged or sunken throughout the community in many areas, the trails needed to be re-paved and the gutters also were failing.
We started out by addressing the curb and drainage issues first, paving the trails and then milling and paving all of the neighborhood courts and streets. The curb replacement process took place in several areas throughout the community. Areas that were sunken caused water to pool in parking bay or drive lanes, which lead to liabilities and potential asphalt failure. Our crew replaced the curbs as necessary.
One location required a French drain installation to prevent future premature deterioration of the asphalt. Water was pumping up through the asphalt from a subsurface source and caused the asphalt to rapidly deteriorate. Our crew saw cut and excavated the asphalt for the French drain, then laid pipe. We installed 500 feet of a French drain system to mitigate subsurface water from coming up and paved over it all once finished.
The trails were in fairly good condition overall but still needed asphalt overlay. One area of the trail also needed to be raised to help with drainage so we adequately addressed that problem as well and installed new piping.
Finally, we milled and paved all courts and streets in the community! Now the roadway is restored, the curbs are functioning and the trails are completed for residents to use! The entire community is thrilled to have all of the drainage issues fixed and everything looks new!
