Road Widening

Road Widening

Looking to widen a road? Consider the merits of geofoam

Just about every road will have to be widened at some point as the population continues to expand.  Widening roads proves that much easier with geofoam.  Expand the road you have in mind with geofoam and congestion will no longer be as much of a problem.  Geofoam is the most affordable, fast, and reliable means of widening roads.  Opt for geofoam for your road widening project and you won’t have to worry about fill testing, compaction, road construction time and the potential to affect nearby roads, structures or utilities in a negative way.  Geofoam’s comparably high compressive resistance ensures it can endure considerable weight from traffic without leading to the loading of nearby fills or soil below.

Easy & Quick Installation

Geofoam is also favored as it allows for the building of a much steeper slope than would be possible with conventional soil, ultimately decreasing the extent of right-of-way that must be acquired. If the road must be expanded to an area where there is a pre-existing buried utility line, a water main, high-pressure gas line or other cables, geofoam is absolutely perfect. While traditional fills lead to excessive settlement that strains buried lines and create the potential for failure, geofoam eliminates massive settlements, so there is no need to interrupt, relocate or replace utility lines. Give geofoam a try for your road widening project and you will agree it is the perfect material for expanding driving surfaces in a timely, affordable, and durable manner.
