Construction Materials Testing

  • Location: Fort Myers, FL

PROJECT SCOPE: AMRC was retained by the Lee County Department of Transportation (LCDOT) to conduct construction materials testing, subcontractor oversight and project management for a two-year span during the Phase I Expansion Project on Summerlin Road in Fort Myers, Florida.  AMRC performed systematic testing and inspection services of concrete and asphalt to assure materials utilized during construction met project specifications.  Poured concrete samples were tested for tensile strength and slump. Asphalt samples were collected and transported to a testing laboratory for analysis and comparison to the specification criteria.  AMRC collected soil proctor samples and assessed the compaction of soils throughout the roadway.  A portion of the roadway project consisted of the fly-over that is located at the intersection of Summerlin and Gladiolus roads.  AMRC collected concrete samples throughout the pouring of the concrete material.
