Oakley – Main Street Reconstruction Project – Summer 2015


The City of Oakley is undertaking the reconstruction of a one mile section of Main Street. This section of Main Street (Bridgehead to Big Break) is a gateway to the city and is being reconstructed using, a Cold‐In‐Place Recycling (CIR) technology and Asphalt Rubber Hot Mix to address pavement failures. CIR is a sustainable technology that utilizes the existing roadway material by grinding and remixing the existing asphalt with fresh asphalt emulsion binder and then compacting the material. The project is then completed by placement of an Asphalt Rubber wearing surface on top of the CIR layer. This project will provide the City with cost savings of $400,000 compared to conventional road reconstruction while reducing greenhouse gases by 200 tons, eliminating 500 truck trips, and using over 14,000 recycled rubber tires. The CIR work will begin on June 30th. The patch work being done now is to replace sections of the road where Sierra-Crete was used as a base.
