Posted by Eric Cox on 9/1/17 3:09 PM

New England Real Estate Journal (NEREJ) recognized the work U.S. Pavement Services has done in the retail zone known as the “Golden Triangle” that straddles the Natick/Framingham town line. During the months of July and August a total of 5 properties in the 3 square mile area had asphalt and concrete work done. Retail titans Target and BJ’s Wholesale had milling grading, paving, curbing, concrete and asphalt patching as well as pavement markings done on site without disruption to business operations. The Shopper’s World plaza, which spans the width of the triangle, had extensive curbing repaired and replaced in multiple locations, reducing trip and tire hazards for visitors to the property. Papa Razzi restaurant received a complete crackfill, sealcoating and line stripe which instantly upgraded the property that directly faces Rt. 9 westbound in Framingham. At New England furniture favorite, Jordan’s Furniture, milling, paving, patching, sealcoating and custom striping of its large parking lot and access roads was completed with minimal business disruption despite the large scale, multiple scope project.
