Capitol Materials – Macon, GA

Macon, GA - 2019

Project Description

Capitol Materials, located in Macon, GA, chose FORTA-FERRO macro synthetic fibers to reinforce their pavement parking lot. This 256-cu yd project originally specified steel, but the company
switched to fibers instead at a dosage of 4.0 lb/cu yd. Cost savings and time was a major factor for the owners, so by forgoing rebar they were able to cut down on both. In addition, Capitol Materials increased the fatigue value and impact resistance of their pavement by choosing FORTA-FERRO fibers. This helps prevent cracking from the heavy truck traffic. The ready mixer contributed greatly to this project. Because of his reviews of past projects that used FORTA-FERRO fiber reinforcement, he sold using it to Capitol Materials.
