Chicago Loop Project Sports Colored Concrete

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In the typical asphalt pavement jungle of the Chicago Loop, a new dedicated bus route is being built with colored concrete for durability, distinction and performance, reports NRMCA Vice President, National Resources, Jon Hansen. The Loop Link project is expected to cut bus travel times by 25% on the dedicated red concrete lanes. The all-concrete design is a departure from the normal pavement design for Chicago Loop road construction which is a concrete pavement base with 2 inches of asphalt wear surface. When complete, the project will feature two miles of bus lane paving, with the majority having an adjacent but separate bike lane.
