Project Description

Mirage was contracted by Formosa Plastics to clear, survey, grade, and achieve drainage at the virgin site. Roadwork consisted of 333,000 SF of lime stabilized subgrade, limestone base, and chip seal. The newly installed roads held up wonderfully as Mirage then trucked in 16,492 tons of limestone to install material laydown yards.
