Project Profile: Liquid Road Application in Wayne, IL

Jobsite Location: Woods of Wayne in Wayne, IL

Project Scope: Application of Liquid Road in the Woods of Wayne HOA.

Product Specifics: Liquid Road is a high performance mineral and fiber reinforced asphalt emulsion blended with polymers and special surfactants.  It replenishes the binder that is lost through oxidation and weathering, while providing a slip resistant durable surface treatment.  Two of the main advantages of Liquid Road are it extends the service life of pavement.  And protects the pavement from oxidation, UV rays and moisture intrusion.

Unlike many surface treatments used on residential streets, Liquid Road doesn’t alter the profile of the pavement on which it is installed.  Upon re-opening of the streets after installation, residents can return to immediately enjoying their asphalt surfaces in whatever fashion they prefer such as biking, walking or roller blading.

As an asphalt-based material, Liquid Road will as environmentally neutral as the surface on which it is installed.

Special Olympics World Games

177 countries, 7,000 athletes, and 25 different sports make up the biggest event in Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympic Games. The Special Olympics World Games feature nine days of challenging and inspiring international competition among thousands of athletes, making it the world’s second-largest sports event, after the Olympic Games. The Special Olympics World Games, which happens every 2 years, bring out the courage, determination, and joy that exemplifies a Special Olympics athlete.

The Special Olympics movement was founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, and has grown to more than 4.5 million athletes in 170 countries. With the support of more than 1.3 million coaches and volunteers, Special Olympics delivers 32 Olympic-type sports and more than 94,000 games and competitions throughout the year.

The games strive to create a better world by fostering acceptance and inclusion of all. A major part of this incredible event is the wonderful fans that participate by cheering on the athletes and supporting the wonderful program that is the Special Olympics. As soon as Rose Paving-Los Angeles caught wind of the World Games being in Los Angeles, they knew they had to get involved. Rose Paving joined in by being ‘Fans in the Stands’, where employees and their families pick an Olympic event(s) (Soccer) and become ‘those’ fans in the stands. You know the ones – they meet and cheer the athletes before, during, and after their games, making sure the athletes know how special they are. Overall, the events make such a positive change and impact, not only in Los Angeles, but the World. The Rose Paving team have made some lifelong friendships from around the world.

Project Profile: Crackseal the ‘Old Plank Road Trail’ for the Will County Forest Preserve

Jobsite Location: Old Plank Road Trail

Project Scope: Asphalt Joint / Crack Route and Fill of the 20 mile trail that runs from Joliet to Park Forest.

Procedure: The crack is first routed out using a routing machine. The machine creates a ½-inch deep by ½-inch wide reservoir / channel for the crackseal material. Next, an air compressor is used to clean out the channel to make sure it is free of debris and dust. Hot material is then injected into the channel, using a wand with a special tip and flush filled.

The heated material (375 – 400°) includes rubberized asphalt, low modulus rubberized asphalt, fiberized asphalt and asphalt rubber. It adheres to the channel like glue. Because of the rubber content, the crackseal allows the asphalt to expand and contract as necessary without continuing to crack.

Asphalt should be cracksealed every 2 – 3 years to prevent more costly repairs such as resurfacing or reconstruction.

March to College Kick-off

Rose Paving has always felt that supporting charities and reaching out to the community is extremely important. That is why, 18 months ago, we joined the initiatives of Center for Companies That Care that launched a ground-breaking student mentoring program, AIM High, to ensure that 100% of participating students will graduate from high school, enter college, and gain the skills needed to succeed in tomorrow’s workplace.

A critical factor in college matriculation is a long term relationship with at least one adult person who believes in the student. Center for Companies That Care has facilitated this relationship by implementing a four-year mentoring program matching low-income, urban students with corporate mentors. A group of employees within a company will formally mentor one student through high school graduation and into college. We currently sponsor 3 students and are participating in the March to College, an annual fundraising event.

In addition to fundraising, The March to College includes a timed 5k walk / run to encourage healthy living, and a college fair, to help students set sites on college early by exposing them to information about area colleges and universities. Our company goal is to raise $3000 this year.

Nite at the Net

nite at the netThe Hinsdale Racquet Club and Catholic Charities recently held their annual ‘Nite at the Net’ charity event.  This year it featured Chicago Blackhawks Coach “Q” Joel Quenneville, who emceed the event.  The ‘Nite at the Net’ is two hours of drills, food and drinks, along with a silent and live auction.

The net proceeds benefit the Neighbors in Need fund which offers help and hope to families that are facing an imminent crisis that threatens their access to basic human needs, like food, shelter, clothing, or electricity.  The numbers just came in and over $64k was raised this year.

This year our President, Ed Campbell and his two sons, Eddie and Charlie participated.  Everyone had a great time and workout at the same time.

Flag Dedication Ceremony

flagdedication_pics1Our Bridgeview, IL-based team, along with the local Marine Corps League, performed a ceremony last month on Friday, November 14, 2014, to dedicate our new flag and pole to all the men and women that serve our country.

The ceremony consisted of several parts including the presentation of the flag, the acceptance and dedication of the flag, and the raising of the flag. The Marine Corps League, comprised of 2 riflemen and 2 flag bearers, along with our CEO, Alan Rose, and several members of management, including Jose Valdez, Branch Operations Manager and former Marine, and were in attendance to witness this special ceremony. As “Old Glory” waved proudly in front of Rose Paving corporate headquarters, all in attendance stood to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

Similar flag dedications are planned for each of Rose Paving’s U.S. offices in 2015, and all will likewise honor our nation’s service men and women.

Did you know?

  • The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.
  • The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
  • When a flag becomes frayed or worn to the point it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
  • When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height.
