DuraTherm Intersections in College Park, MD

Five DuraTherm intersections were recently installed in College Park, MD. These intersections are along Baltimore Ave., adjacent to The University of Maryland. These crosswalks were installed with a White border and Cinnamon main color; creating a highly visible, traffic calming solution. Perfect for an environment with high student and pedestrian traffic.

DuraTherm is a specially-designed thermoplastic material that is inlaid into imprinted asphalt and heated in place using an infrared heater. Engineered to lie slightly below the asphalt surface, DuraTherm is protected from wear, ensuring effective service life while maintaining its look for years.

StreetPrintXD Crosswalks on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE, Washington DC

Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE in Washington DC recently added 29 high-performance StreetPrintXD crosswalks. These decorative thermoplastic crosswalks were installed from Howard Road SE to Good Hope Road SE.

StreetPrintXD will provide a practical, durable, and attractive solution for an area that is high in vehicle and pedestrian traffic. StreetPrintXD is a popular option in areas like this because they give the same great look of real brick pavers; but are more cost-effective and more road-safe, providing a smooth and trip-hazard free path across busy roads.  unlike regular thermoplastics, which are typically 90 mils thick with glass beads; StreetPrintXD is 180 mils thick and aggregate reinforced. Making it stronger, as well as non-skid. Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE is now road-safe and trip-hazard free.

Alternative Paving Concepts installed these crosswalks  in a brick pattern and color, complimenting the brick buildings along MLK.

Stamped Asphalt at Naval Station Norfolk, Norfolk VA

Alternative Paving Concepts recently completed a decorative stamped asphalt project at the World’s largest naval base: Naval Station Norfolk, Norfolk VA. Naval Station Norfolk, also known as Norfolk Naval Base, is a base of the United States Navy. It occupies about four miles of waterfront space and seven miles of pier and wharf space of the Hampton Roads peninsula. It is the world’s largest naval station and supports about 75 ships and 134 aircrafts alongside 14 piers, 11 aircraft aircraft hangers, and houses the largest concentration of U.S. Navy forces.
This project consisted of decorative stamped asphalt around a building on base. Naval Station Norfolk already utilizes  stamped asphalt throughout the station for walkways, sidewalks, and also intersections and crosswalks. This new addition was installed to match the existing pattern and color seen throughout the base.
Pattern: Ashlar Slate

Color: Khaki
