Ranger Central has been awarded the annual contract for improving roadways in Palm Beach County for the fourth year in a row. From November 2006 through October 2007, Ranger will mill and resurface numerous roadways throughout the county. The contract value is more than $4 million and will require about 60,000 tons of asphalt.
Ranger Central also has two contracts with the North Palm Beach County Improvement District. One job includes $1.4 million of improvements to the intersections at Pratt Whitney and Indiantown Roads, while the other, valued at $5.2 million, includes reconstructing and realigning a severe curve on Indiancreek Drive.
Recently completed projects include asphalt resurfacing projects for the towns of Palm Beach and Ocean Ridge, finished in October.
Ranger Central also has a number of private sector contracts underway, including improvements to the intersection at Gateway Blvd. and Congress Ave. for the Sembler Company. In addition to milling and resurfacing, Ranger will add lanes and drainage.
