million-dollar-beachAs the stubborn, cold weather finally begins to break, crews from Rifenburg Construction will be back to work at the famed “Million Dollar Beach” at the south end of Lake George. Peckham Materials Corp. in Hudson Falls worked very closely with Rifenburg 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. Thefinished parking lot roadand 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. When the job is completed by the beach’s annual Memorial Day opening, the quarry will have supplied almost 25,000 tons of stone to the projectand the blacktop plant will have made 10,000 tons. Approximately 7500 tons are porous mix. Get to the beach and check out another great, environmentally friendly paving job that makes us proud!
