As the Olive Avenue reconstruction project in downtown West Palm Beach comes to a close, Ranger Central can take pride in having completed one of the most complex paving jobs in its history.
Ranger was the asphalt subcontractor for the project, which called for the complete reconstruction of a one-mile section through the heart of the city.
Ranger had to perform within a very narrow area, detouring heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic, while paving around manholes, curbs, gutters, raised brick walkways, tight spaces, and the presence of other subcontractors on the job.
Despite the difficulties, the crew completed all work well ahead of schedule. Ranger Project Manager Michael Correa had nothing but praise for the team. “The quality and professionalism of our paving crews, the foremen and other coordinators made a very important difference in overcoming the project’s challenges.”
Ranger’s work accounted for approximately $940,000 of the overall $7.7 million roadway improvement contract.
