Million Dollar Beach, Lake George, NY
Peckham Materials Corp., Rifenburg Construction and Barton & Loguidice, Village of Lake George
Porous Pavement, Deep Stone Reservoir Base Coarse
Parking Lot Reconstruction
At the famed “Million Dollar Beach” at the south end of Lake George. Peckham Materials Corp. in Hudson Falls worked very closely with Rifenburg Construction and engineer Barton & Loguidice in the fall to get as much work done as possible before the winter. The entire parking area was removed and completely reconstructed with porous pavement and a deep stone reservoir base coarse underneath.
Lake George is renowned for its excellent water quality that has been preserved over the years, and the parking lot at the beach is the last step in a multi-year project. The finished parking lot road and the road across the southern tip of the lake will keep sediment and other deleterious materials from the pristine waters along that highly traveled corridor.
The job was completed by the beach’s annual Memorial Day opening. The quarry will have supplied almost 25,000 tons of stone to the project and the blacktop plant will have made 10,000 tons. Approximately 7,500 tons are porous mix.
