These are piles of aggregate and sand that will be used in the concrete pavement for I-26. The sand had to be of a very particular gradation and particle shape, and had to be trucked in from a site 200 miles away. The large dump truck on the gravel gives a good indication of the size of the aggregate pile. The concrete paving operation should begin in the summer of 2002. Photo taken in May 2002.
