Kimball Avenue


Featured Case Study

Yonkers Tries 40% Recycled Asphalt Pavement and Drives Impressive Results

Peckham Materials Corp. partnered with the City of Yonkers and Yonkers Contracting to pave a portion of Kimball Avenue between Yonkers Avenue to Hildreth Place. The plan was to use a 12.5mm surface hot mix asphalt design consisting of 40% Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP). At the time of the project initiation, the state's approved asphalt mixes used a maximum of 20% RAP. Peckham proposed a 40% RAP mix to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and positively impact the overall community.
