About Commercial Paving
It's important to keep your commercial paving consistent for the sake of your customers. Whether you run an apartment complex or retail outlet, well maintained commercial paving helps minimize the risk of pedestrian accidents and adds curb appeal to your business. Paving should be done according to a standard design plan, followed by regular maintenance and repair jobs to keep it looking fresh and spiffy. There are several things to keep in mind when it comes to commercial paving. Here are some of the most common misconceptions about commercial paving and a look at some of the practicality behind commercial paving design.
Parking Lots: Parking lots can be designed as premium, public amenities or as low-cost, high-maintenance back-up facilities. In most cases, it's better to design residential driveways and multi-lane parking lots to be low maintenance. Residential driveways need less maintenance and upkeep because they get filled with cars only on occasion. Multi-lane parking lots on the other hand, will require more frequent maintenance and are usually managed on an annual basis.
Commercial Pavement: Just like residential pavements, commercial asphalt pavement is subject to wear and tear, especially during the harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow and heat. When designing your commercial paving project, it's important that you provide adequate walkways and crosswalks to reduce traffic hazards. Make sure that the concrete used in the construction of the commercial pavement has adequate drainage, as it must be water resistant to reduce the chances of mold and mildew. Asphalt pavement is the most cost-effective commercial paving material, so it's important that you select quality commercial paving contractors to ensure that your pavement is done on time and that it remains in good condition.
Alterations to Parkways and Driveways: If you want to give a new look to your office or commercial building, you can first use modern paver techniques to pave your walkways and driveways. In addition to giving a new look to the area, you can also improve safety for both your employees and customers. The first impression that people have of your workplace is often formed when they enter your premises. By installing safety measures like fences and gates, you can help create a safer environment for everyone.
Apart from enhancing the beauty of your workplace, you can also benefit from these projects by cutting maintenance costs and avoiding costly repairs in the long run. Parking lots, walkways, driveways and kiosks usually require a lot of maintenance due to heavy foot traffic and vehicle tires. By providing visibility for your workers, paving projects help in reducing the risks of accidents and serious injuries. This results in improved productivity and profitability.
Many people are turning to the services of commercial paving companies to handle their driveway, sidewalk or driveway's needs. The process involves sanding, coating and sealing the paved surfaces to provide a durable and attractive surface. Most paving contractors offer a complete line of products, including Concrete Pavers, Custom concretes, Concrete overlay, Concrete resurfacing, Terrated Concrete Resurfacing, Injection Molded Concrete Resurfacing, etc. They are able to accomplish any size job, be it commercial or residential, by utilizing different technologies and equipment. For instance, if you are repaving a residential driveway, they will use machines that create an imprint of the newly created surface. They can then repair any cracks or chips that may exist by performing a variety of tools including grinding, augers and paint guns.
Before the settlement of the area by people of European descent, the Woodland area was inhabited by the Patwin, a subgroup of the Wintun Native Americans. There are two main groups of Patwin: River and Coastal Patwin. Woodland's indigenous roots stem from the River Patwin, who tended to stay closer to the Sacramento River, as opposed to the Coastal Patwin who lived in small valleys in hills and ranges. The Yolotoi, a tribelet of the Patwin, occupied area near Woodland, and settled a village northwest of Woodland and another close to present day Knights Landing. Although they didn't have a permanent settlement in present-day Woodland, it is believed that the River Patwin occupied the Woodland area in seasonal camps for hunting and seed gathering. The Yolotoi and their neighboring tribelets had a main trading trail which followed Cache Creek. The exchange of goods between the neighboring tribes of the Nomlaki to the north, the Nisenan to the east, and the Pomo to the west also served as a way of cultural and social interchange between all the tribes. The simultaneous enslavement and spread of disease through the Patwin by the Spanish missionaries had quickly taken dramatic effects; a malarial epidemic in 1830–33 and a smallpox epidemic in 1837 killed much of the surviving natives. However, it has been found that some of the first farm hands in the earliest farms in Woodland were the Patwin people.
In 1851, the year after California became a state and Yolo County was formed, "Uncle Johnny" Morris settled in what is now the corner of First and Clover Streets in Woodland. Two years later Henry Wyckoff arrived and built a store he named "Yolo City". This new Yolo City might have stayed a singular store if Frank S. Freeman had not bought it and acquired 160 acres (0.65 km2) of land in 1857. Freeman began to develop a town that he hoped would be a trading center for one of the richest crop-growing areas in America. He was giving land to anyone who would clear it and build their home on it. In 1859, Freeman suggested to the post office that the town be called Woodland and the post office accepted. Later, on July 5, 1861, the Woodland Post Office was established and Freeman was made the Postmaster. He lost no time in further developing the town by leasing or selling buildings for businesses to use.
The 1860s were a time of opportunity for Woodland. The county seat was permanently moved to Woodland after Washington, California (now a part of West Sacramento) had flooded. Schools, homes, churches, and a cemetery were built at this time. The town's newspaper, the Daily Democrat and a rail line was built. In 1869, the California Pacific Railroad Company constructed a line between Davisville (now Davis) and Marysville with a Woodland station in the area of College Street and Lincoln Avenue. The rail line expanded and was eventually acquired by Southern Pacific Railroad. The track was then relocated from College Street to East Street, the eastern edge of the city at that point. The addition of the railroad is what led to the expansion of Woodland as a town. Before the railroad came, people were building primarily on Main Street and northward. Later, expansion headed westward and southward, as well.
In 1870 the population of Woodland was estimated to be 1,600 people, 647 of whom were registered voters. Signatures were collected to petition for the incorporation of the town, which was successful. The City of Woodland was incorporated in 1871 and its residents soon had a multitude of services such as regular train and telegraph operations, telephone services, gas, water, electricity, street lights, and graveled streets. Byron Jackson, inventor of the centrifugal pump, opened a machine shop in Woodland in 1872. The business was moved to San Francisco in 1879 and provided highly efficient pumps for ground water irrigation which transformed agriculture and industry in California.
Woodland's Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1900 with the aim of helping business flourish in the city. During this time public activism helped Woodland get a library, a city park, and an improved cemetery. In 1910 Woodland was the most populous city in the county, with a population of 3,187. For the next forty years Woodland continued growing, slowly but steadily, in population, businesses and industries. Its economic growth was based mainly in agriculture-related businesses; three rice mills, a sugar beet refinery, and a tomato cannery were built during this time.
After President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which authorized military commanders to exclude "any or all persons" from certain areas in the name of national defense, the Western Defense Command began ordering Japanese Americans living on the West Coast to present themselves for "evacuation" from the newly created military zones. This included many Woodland farming families.
At Woodland, was a Woodland Civil Control Station, for checking in, with no overnight accommodations.
The post-war era spurred much growth in Woodland; between 1950 and 1980, Woodland's population tripled. It is said that in the 1950s Woodland had the most millionaires per capita of any city in California. Industrial plants and distribution centers have grown in the northeast, and there are new subdivisions and shopping centers around the town. Since the late 1960s, there has been a greater interest in preserving the town's historic buildings, and an impressive number of them have been restored for use as homes, offices, stores and museums. Woodland's "Stroll Through History," an annual event, began in 1989 to showcase many of the Victorian homes and other historical sites throughout the city.
In the 1970s Interstate 5 construction was completed; the freeway curves around Woodland. Over time, I-5 and State Route 113 have replaced the railroads as major transportation arteries.
Within the past decade, Woodland has grown immensely, with many additions to the community. Numerous subdivisions have been built (mainly on the east side of town) and several major chain stores have opened business in Woodland.
A new high school, Pioneer, was opened in the 2003–04 school year. A new elementary school and middle school in the Pioneer High School vicinity are to be constructed within the next few years.
Main Street has seen a revival with the addition of several new restaurants, a brand new court house, ongoing renovations of the Old State Theater into a 10-screen multiplex movie theater, and plans to build a hotel and a music venue.
Woodland is located on flat land in the Central Valley (California), with the Yolo Bypass and the Sacramento River to the east and the Capay Valley and the Coast Range to the west. Woodland is a part of the Sacramento Metropolitan Area but it retains a "small town" feeling partly due to the mileage between the city and the neighboring cities. It is located just southeast of the county's geographical center, and is one of the largest cities north of Sacramento along Interstate 5 until Redding. Interstate 5 enters the city from the east and curves northward over the remainder of Woodland, exiting northwest. SR 113 enters the city from the south as a controlled access freeway and merges with the I-5, then diverges leaving the city northward as a standard two-lane road. The city is surrounded by farmland.
Woodland has a Mediterranean climate with dry, hot summers and cool, relatively wet winters, as with the rest of California's Sacramento Valley. The rainy season is generally from October through April. Average high temperatures range from 96 °F in July to 54 °F in January, while average lows range from 58 °F in July to 38 °F in December and January. January is typically the wettest month with about 3.92 inches (99 mm) of rain. All-time extremes for Woodland are 15 °F and 114 °F.
Summer brings warm days, with temperatures frequently in the upper 90s, but the "Delta Breeze" that blows into the valley through the Carquinez Strait usually makes for comfortable evenings and nighttime temperatures in the upper 50s. Occasional heat waves raise the temperature above 100 degrees. During late fall and throughout the winter months, Woodland experiences cooler temperatures, rain from storms originating in the Pacific Ocean and Gulf of Alaska, tule fog, and a few mornings of frost and freezing conditions. When the chilling fog does not burn off, daytime highs may remain in the 40s or low 50s for several consecutive days. Snow is extremely rare in Woodland; the last measurable snowfall occurred on January 28, 2002. The Sierra Nevada mountains, about 60 miles to the east of Woodland, receive significant amounts of snow each winter. The cool and wet weather becomes much less frequent in April and May as the days gradually get warmer.
