Repair Asphalt Pavements Center-Wide

Back to Projects

Project Scope

Due to years of deferred maintenance, 100% of the parking areas and roadways at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center required to be either repaired or replaced. Permanent personnel needed daily access to buildings and facilities, therefore Cutting Edge set up five phases of construction to minimize impact throughout the center. Coordination between Cutting Edge, NASA and each building facility manager was key to reduce down time, which included working off hours and weekends. Main contract work included substantial traffic control for area closures, crack routing, and demolition of existing asphalt paving, structural section/subgrade reconstruction, crack fill, asphalt patching, Gilsonite (slurry seal) and striping. Additionally, a new 44,000 square-foot reinforced concrete parking lot was added with challenging grading and drainage requirements, new street length curb and gutter, sidewalks, new parking area lights and new catch basins to tie into existing storm drain systems. Parking lot concrete was placed and finished in 2 phases by laser screed working overnight to mitigate heat related concrete issues resulting from hot weather placement.
