MCSA Group provided comprehensive services for the Michigan DNR – Forest, Mineral & Fire Management Division, to construct a trail from Hershey to Evart. Services included Design Development, Construction Documents, and Construction Administration for 4.5 miles of asphalt paved rails to trails development with 3 sections of supermix test bituminous paving.
This was the first use of the special HMA snowmobile mix. Trail paving utilizes 3 special HMA Mix Designs, as well as traditional (36A) wear course, providing the opportunity to carefully evaluate all four mixes. One of the mix designs has proven to be superior.
