Construction Materials Testing

  • Location: Fort Myers, FL

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.
