111,000 square yards of concrete pavement was broken and seated with a MHB Badger Breaker® and a 35-ton proof roller. Antigo also performed 54,000 square yards of breaking concrete for removal in full-depth reconstruction areas.
This project was bid with alternate pavement types. The concrete pavement option, which did not include break & seat, was a 9″ thick jointed plain concrete pavement. The break & seat and asphalt overlay option was the low-cost bid even though $570,000 was added to account for predicted higher life cycle costs.
