    The First Time: Roadway Contractor Uses Lightweight EPS Geofoam for a Smooth First Experience

    A roadway improvement project in Willowbrook, Illinois, a western suburb of Chicago where State Highway 83 crosses 63rd street in a mostly commercial intersection bordered by a golf course on the northeast side.  The scope of work was to replace a box culvert crossing beneath 63rd street that was used to move water runoff from the golf course to a small pond on the south side of the road.  

    With water draining from the golf course to the pond, the soil along the southeast side of 63rd street had been settling for a long time. The result was a swampy area dividing the road from the pond and stabilizing the roadway base would require new fill material. Anselmo Presisto, P.E., the project manager with Greco Construction was a bit surprised to see a line item for a product he’d never used before. Foam-Control® expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam was specified as a structural fill to stabilize the area between the pond and the road.
