Caring for our Communities
Back in the fall of 2019, Doug Pierce was contacted by one of our employees that knows Gary King, VFW Commander at Post 9383 in Delphi, Indiana who was reaching out for help in getting their parking lot repaved. The parking lot was really showing its age, with cracking and rutting. Shortly after making contact with Gary, Doug and his team started investigating what was needed so pricing could be prepared and realized we wouldn’t be able to help before the end of the year because of the contract work we had left to complete and that we would have to do it the next year. Unfortunately, we all know what happened shortly thereafter with Covid-19, so with trying to navigate the pandemic and get our contract work done we were not able to help in 2020 either. In the spring of 2021, Gary contacted us again stating they still wanted to get the lot paved and that they had raised money to help pay for some of the work. It ended up being enough to pay for the asphalt mix and most of the trucking, so Milestone provided the crew, equipment, and the balance of the trucking to get the parking lot overlaid. This required milling in locations for tie-ins/butt joints and to remove humps, wedging and leveling in areas to fill ruts, and then overlay the entire lot. Once paved, the lot was striped by Straight Lines, Inc. at a reduced rate. This work was finally completed last November.
A big thanks to Gary for his patience as we worked his paving in with other work, we had in the Delphi area! We are glad we could help out a VFW in our community!
