40 years since the last major service, Pocahontas Road has experienced more wear and tear than ever before with the emergence of concert traffic for the annual Bonnaroo music festival. That, along with work commutes and an abundance farm equipment, caused the road to be in rough shape. Lacking any crown, its edges had crumbled and failed due to standing water and poor drainage; it was the perfect candidate for FDR.
Coffee County’s Highway Department Director hired RoadWorx, Inc. to do the job. We commissioned GeoServices to perform all the testing before and during the project. The 37,265 square yard project was designed at 8 inches with 40 pounds of Portland cement per square yard. The FDR process started on a Monday and was finished in just 11 days.
