Western Rock Products Aggregates donated about 500 tons of fines material from our Atkin location. The material needed to meet gradation specifications and had a unique plasticity requirement to bind and retain while under the BMX bike racing conditions. WRP met the criteria with some blending, and the owners and designer said the material was ideal for the conditions and has held up very well. Western Rock was contracted to pave the BMX track banking turns with Hot Mix Asphalt. The banks were steep and required creative methods to place the asphalt and achieve compaction. WRP placed approximately 280 tons of asphalt in the bank turns to achieve the customers’ design.
"According to the national track builder overseeing this project, the asphalt paving on this track is the best asphalt paving on a BMX track they have seen. They will now incorporate Western Rock's means and methods into future designs."
