Concrete Paving

Fox Enterprises has over 20 years’ experience providing concrete paving for commercial properties, state and federal roads and highways, airports, private roads, driveways, walkways and sidewalks. No project is too big or too small for our quality work. There are four types of concrete pavement:

  • Plain pavements with dowels that use dowels to provide load transfer and prevent faulting,
  • Plain pavements without dowels, in which aggregate interlock transfers loads across joints and prevents faulting,
  • Conventionally reinforced pavements that contain steel reinforcement and use dowels in contraction joints, and
  • Continuously reinforced pavements that have no contraction joints and are reinforced with continuous longitudinal steel.

There are two methods for paving with concrete—slipform and fixed form. In slipform paving, a machine rides on treads over the area to be paved-similar to a train moving on a set of tracks. Fresh concrete is deposited in front of the paving machine which then spreads, shapes, consolidates, screeds, and float finishes the concrete in one continuous operation. This operation requires close coordination between the concrete placement and the forward speed of the paver. In fixed-form paving, stationary metal forms are set and aligned on a solid foundation and staked rigidly. Final preparation and shaping of the subgrade or subbase is completed after the forms are set.

Here is a sample of our Concrete Paving work projects:
