Construction Erosion Inspection-Trench Excavation Asphalt Kept Clean

Dirt from trench excavation loaded into front loader bucket and hauled to stockpile, or dirt side cast onto asphalt: which is cheaper? How about no sweeper needed, no dirty water going down the drain, asphalt kept clean?  I go with the first answer.

Fancy Rock Entrance

I saw this fancy rock entrance on the way to work and thought it was amusing on the surface. Really, though, I think they needed the elevation to access the upper part of the site. That’s a nice mini excavator.
