There’s never a great time to shut down a busy asphalt plant for repairs. But when it’s hurricane wind damage and another season is approaching, you do it anyway.

Last year’s hurricanes damaged the outer panels on the storage silos and mixing drum at Ranger Construction’s Fort Pierce, FL, plant. But busy production schedules — including miles of emergency road repairs on Indian River Drive in St. Lucie County (shown below) and other roadways — prevented complete plant repairs until earlier this year.

“We had to shut down for two weeks to finish,” said Vice President Bob Schafer. “You hate to lose production, but we also took care of a few other items to make the most of the down time.”

Now that the repairs are finished, the plant is back to its usual busy production schedule.

Ranger Central repaired miles of Indian River Drive  in St. Lucie County, FL, after last year’s hurricanes  destroyed the shoreline and shoulder and washed out  entire sections of roadway. Repairs included  placing boulders called “rip-rap” along the slope.
