Paving Around Hanford’s WTP Reshapes Landscape
Paving Around Hanford’s WTP Reshapes Landscape

RICHLAND, Wash. – Before and after views: the landscape around EM’s Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP) continues to show signs of progress. Inland Asphalt, part of CRH Group, a subcontractor to WTP contractor Bechtel National Inc., is paving roads and parking lots around the future operational area of the plant, which supports one of EM’s 2020 priorities: complete Direct-Feed Low-Activity Waste construction and turn-over to commissioning. While taking advantage of the warm summer weather and using COVID-19 safety protocols, this work will continue over the next several weeks to establish nearly 620,000 square feet of permanent walkways and roadways.Click here to watch a video about this project.
