This year’s back-to-school list for Salem High School included renovations across the campus, and Boxley was there to deliver. Repairs got put on the calendar after Salem City Council approved a tax increase in 2019—initially granting $36 million in renovations at the school.
“I’m excited to see what they do at the high school, and I’m excited to see how far this money goes,” Josh Kier, a lifelong Salem resident, and private school teacher, told WSLS.
Boxley Asphalt played different roles to achieve the common goal: turn taxpayer dollars into student prosperity.
Hired through the primary contractors ATC Corp and G&H Contracting, we got to work. Hitting the job site first, over 1,500 yards of Ready-Mix got poured for interior and exterior projects. Then as summer came to a close, approximately 700-tons of asphalt, intermediate mix (IM-19.0), and surface mix (SM-9.5A) were laid to provide a new track surface, runways, and sandpits.
“We jump on projects like this, knowing the positive impact it will have on younger generations for decades to come. Soon the newest rising stars from Salem will aim for number one by running, jumping, and pole vaulting their way ahead of the competition. Our work allows for them to have a reliable place to achieve that at.” – Ryan Kesler (Asphalt Estimator)

Construction is nearing completion at the Beaver Creek Dam Reservoir where Boxley has supplied aggregate for Martinsville city’s $2 million repair project. The regularly inspected 70-year-old facility is looking at extending life by another 50 years with the repairs that took place over the past year.
Beaver Creek Reservoir, Martinsville’s primary water source, is within the proximity of Boxley’s Fieldale Quarry, making us a practical choice to provide the material. Haymes Brothers, the construction company on the job, has utilized 2010 tons of aggregate to complete the spillway repairs.
“It’s always a pleasure working with Haymes Brothers, who hold quality service and products to a high standard just like Boxley does.” Johan Van Eeden (Quality Control Lab Technician)
