RCC Applied as SR 25 Shoulder
Delphi – On the morning of Tuesday, August 27th, the concrete industry in Indiana took a major step forward with the application of roller compacted concrete (RCC). INDOT approved a trail application on the shoulder of the newly constructed SR 25 connecting Logansport to Ft. Wayne to Toledo. E & B Paving paved the material with Irving Materials, Inc. providing the material. After a brief presentation, the crowd of some 100 people headed to the job site and watched the material go down at about 20 feet a minute. 3850 ft of shoulder was paved and will be closely monitored by INDOT, Purdue, and the industry as a whole moving forward.
