Roadway Planning and Process

For any project, our Roadway Group at Precast Specialties Corp. always develops a curb layout plan that identifies the length of each curb and its exact installation position. This layout plan is used by our plant and our customers to coordinate the logistics of every job. Odd curb lengths are custom made in our plant to eliminate on-site cutting. By implementing this process on every job, we partner with our customers to reduce their job costs and to help make their project flow more easily.

If you are working on a project involving curbing, contact the Roadway Group for assistance with spec development today by calling 781-878-7220 or email us at info@precastspecialtiescorp.com
