Heavy Highway Construction
Herzog was founded to provide specialized heavy/highway construction services and, to this day, it remains a vital part of our operations. We continuously pursue a path of innovation to ensure we are providing cutting-edge delivery systems, materials, and products for our clients. We are confident we can deliver a product of excellence that is safe, durable, reliable, and meets or exceeds the expectations of our customers.
Our work capabilities allow us to conduct all phases of work from the design, the management, and to the construction of the project. Our construction services extend well beyond the traditional municipal, governmental, and state agencies to commercial and private developments. We provide customers with a safe and sound road surface through new construction and asphalt resurfacing jobs.
Herzog’s heavy highway division helps lead the nation in innovative recycling concepts. In addition to the use of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP), the nations most recycled product, Herzog is also on the cutting edge of recycling innovative materials such as asphalt roofing shingles, power plant slag, and ground tires. While maintaining quality in this recycling process, Herzog offers significant cost savings passed on to the owner on all types of paving projects.
