Yount Street was reconstructed using the Full Depth Reclamation technique. This process was arrived at after extensive testing and analysis and recommendation by our consultant Pavement Engineering Inc. The Town of Yountville uses Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) as the preferred method for street reconstruction as this is the fifth street in as many years to undergo this process. This is an innovative process that saves time, material, and money while reducing the carbon footprint when compared to traditional paving reconstruction processes. FDR is a beneficial process as the existing pavement is pulverized and cement ( and lime) are added to stabilize the sub base. The FDR process provides multiple benefits which include but are not limited too ; the FDR process is cost-effective by reusing/recycling materials. The process can correct drainage problems by allowing for correction and adjustment of the road grade that would not be possible when a traditional overlay process is used. FDR also helps to meet environmental and sustainability goals with less truck traffic through the off-hauling and in hauling of material. The service life of recycled cement base is 25-30 years versus 10-15 years that is the typical result of a traditional grind and overlay method. The project included pulverizing and adding cement and lime to the 33,204 sq.ft. project area. After the stabilization and shaping process was complete approximately 1300 tons of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) was placed and compacted. The project included work in front of both Town Hall and Yountville Elementary School which were both open during the construction project. The project included a water main and lateral replacement project prior to the paving work. Ensuring that the utilizes will last through the service life of the newly constructed street is a typical process in the Town of Yountville. There was also curb, gutter and sidewalk work included in the project as well. The paving project was funded through Measure T funds ( Napa County’s voter approved sales tax) and SB1 funds. This project saved time and money, while reducing the carbon footprint and minimizing the impact on the neighborhood,Yountville Elementary School students, teachers and parents dropping off and picking up, and Town Hall visitors through a more efficient and effective process. The process added bike share as a Class III bike facility. Finally, the Yount Street Project resulted increasing the PCI score for the Town of Yountville to 74, this is the highest rated street system in Napa County.
