Oakland County Road Commission chose Smith’s Waterproofing to install a high friction surface treatment on Clarkston Road. Work was performed on three specific corners, where multiple vehicular fatalities have occurred. Smith’s Waterproofing was the prime contractor for the job and was allowed three weekends to complete the project. The project was completed in just one weekend through great planning and execution by the foremen and crews.
One of the challenges faced during this project was communicating with the homeowners that lived on the road, and keeping them informed of the construction schedule. Each lane of the road was shut down for 6 hours while the epoxy cured. During this time, homeowners were not able to enter or exit their driveway with their vehicles. To ensure the homeowners were not restricted from leaving their homes, Smith’s communicated with over 40 individuals with homes on Clarkston Road to ensure they were aware of when the road would be closed. This allowed for homeowners to park their vehicle in nearby locations and have the ability to travel freely.
Over 53,150 square feet of high friction surface treatment was installed on Clarkston Road by Smith’s Waterproofing. Five shotblast machines were utilized for the surface prep to create a Concrete Surface Profile (CSP) 3 on the road surface, while two crews installed the high friction surface treatment. Smith’s also provided traffic control and cleanup services for the project.
This project was completed two weekends ahead of schedule and under budget. This was another safe project completed with no near misses, accidents or injuries.
