Title:   Burlington Streets: Intervale 

Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

Date:  1939; undated; 1939; undated

June 29, 1946. Burlington Street Department - Burlington, Vermont. Intervale Road - Asphalt Stabilized base and Armor Coat Wearing Surface. This view taken from the intersection of Riverside Ave. looking northerly toward the railroad track shows the mixing process while constructing the stabilized base using asphalt emulsion (XRM) as a binder. The materials used for aggregate on this job was road gravel hauled from the Lunderville Pit in the town of Williston last October (1945) and spread approximately 28 feet in width over the entire section from Riverside Ave. to the railroad crossing, a distance of approximately 875 feet. Note the Allis-Chalmers Power Grader mixing the gravel after the asphalt emulsion had been applied by pressure distributor. The Armor Coat Wearing surface was constructed directly after the stabilized base had been completed. This is a very economical type of paving, especially where a cheaper grade of materials can be used and the location does not demand a higher type of pavement.

Title:   Burlington Streets: Lakeside Ave 

Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

Date:  1945; 12-05; 1945; 12-05

December 5, 1945. City of Burlington, Vermont, Street Department. Lakeside Ave. Pavement Base Construction. This view was taken from a point near the intersection of Conger Ave. looking westerly toward the Lake Champlain. The new factory building just completed for the Blodgett Co. is shown with parking area base recently constructed between the street line and the building. Note the asphalt emulsion stabilized base which was mixed the previous day before taking this picture. Cold weather and frost conditions had frozen the base mixture on the left half of the street but the job was continued on the north half in spite of the low temperatures as the street had to be put in condition to receive traffic for the winter, this street being on a regular bus line. The job was continued by placing a 2 inch layer of crushed stone on this stabilized base and penetrating the same with asphalt emulsion and covering with concrete sand as a "blotter" for the winter and then opened to traffic. This project will be continued to completion in the spring by constructing an integral concrete curb and gutter on the south side of a 3 inch hot plant mix wearing surface over the entire pavement area. Note the asphalt distributor applying emulsion and the tractor and harrow mixing the base.

Title:   Burlington Streets: Pine St. 

Creator:  McAllister, L. L. (Louis L.), 1877-1963

Date:  1944; 10-11

October 11, 1944. Pine Street Project, D.A. - W.I. No. 4, Burlington, Vermont. (Defense Area - War Industry No. 4) This project financed by the Federal Government as an Access Highway to a Defense Plant was handled and supervised through the Vermont State Highway Department. The construction work was done under contract by D. W. Overocker, Genera; Contractor of Burlington, Vermont. The Pine Street Section of the Project consisted primarily of: - (a) Furnished and placed gravel base approximately 12 inches in depth over the entire length of this section from Howard Street to Flynn Ave. (b) Excavating sections near the intersection of Howard Street including the railroad crossing, the intersection of Lakeside Ave. and the intersection at Flynn Ave. where-ever the old pavement would not permit a minimum depth of 12 inches. (c) Furnishing and installing drainage pipes and constructing catch basins and cross culverts for surface drainage. (d) Constructing 3 inch mixed-in-place asphalt pavement 24 feet in width with 5 foot gravel shoulder on either side. (e) Reconstructing railroad crossing to Tuletex Plant (at expense of E. B. and A. C. Whiting Co.). This view was taken from a point in the center of Pine Street just south of the newly constructed railroad crossing looking north. This shows the method of placing and spreading the gravel for the 3 inch mixed-in-place wearing surface. Note the tack coat on either side of the gravel which has already been applied on top of the 12 inch gravel base as a working surface, also note concrete headers for catch basin inlets.
