Most asphalt pavers quickly run away when asked to build a sports facility running track. They know the tolerance factors are very tight and that the asphalt paving process has virtually no margin for error. Any deviation of the asphalt surface will cause imperfections and you'll see it reflected in the lines and puddles will form every time it rains.
The only way to confidently build a running track is to work with a contractor with experienced asphalt paving crews who utilize the specialized equipment that assures those tight tolerances are met. That's exactly what you'll get with the running track specialists at Byrne & Jones Sports Construction. Our reputation as a premier running track construction contractor extends far beyond the St. Louis area. As a full-service running track installation, construction and maintenance company, we manage and self-perform all stages of the construction process.
