City of Peoria



Date Completed

November 2015

Originally two separate contracts named North Country Meadows and South Country Meadows, the City of Peoria wanted to determine if the potential existed to combine both phases into one, while still meeting a projected budget of $1.5M – $1.7M. In total, the project was comprised of 11 miles of roadway to resurface with asphalt. By bringing in a consultant, Banicki was able to provide a mixed design, that included a 1” rubber overlay, with 1” edge mill and placed 1” asphalt on top that met the City’s budget for both projects combined. In total, Banicki laid 9,348 TN of asphalt rubber overlay, edge milled 71,373 LF and made 142 utility adjustments. The City was very concerned that the asphalt in the cul-de-sacs would deteriorate due to the additional stress of large trucks, such as garbage trucks, moving over the roadway. Banicki researched the concern, discussed similar conditions with other municipalities then proposed the use of 1 1/2” terminal blend rubber mix in place of wet process asphalt rubber. Our solution was tested and was adopted by the City for use throughout the entire community – while enabling the project to stay on budget and time. The City was so happy with the results that the terminal blend was used throughout the entire community, while staying on budget and on time.
