CEMEX supplied 4000 yd3 of concrete for road renovations along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, the most visited location in the Grand Canyon National Park. The concrete was used in a project to repave the most frequently used roads, intersections, bus pads, pavements, and wheelchair ramps.

“The Desert View Drive project improved both the aesthetics and safety of Grand Canyon National Park’s roadways,” said Eric Wittmann, West Region President of CEMEX USA.
