Avenue 8 Grade Separation

Edition: July 2019

Asphalt paving is now largely complete for the roadway leading up to the Avenue 8 overcrossing bridge, in preparation for the Madera County road’s reopening. Trucks filled with hot asphalt empty their loads into the front of a paving machine, which then lays out a slab of pavement about six-inches thick, as vibrating rollers compact it. Final pavement striping, drainage inlets, and guardrail installation are the last steps prior to reopening the road.
