Looking good. Now you need to add a vertical loading tower for loading the asphalt trucks that haul their hot load to where paving is being done. Also, a storage tank for the liquid asphalt that is mixed with the gravel in the rotary mixer.
Look into making a portable unit in the future as this is what is often used for highway repaving in areas not near a major metropolitan area.

In my major metropolitan area (Atlanta, GA), they set up portable units inside the cloverleaf areas. The permanent locations are close to going under, if they havn't already.
Vertical expansion of the paving companies.

Thanks everyone. I was in a hurry this morning so I didn't have time to type more about it. I started the tower this morning and the tanks for the asphalt and heating oil were not pictured in this. I also plan to do a control/plant office building. I am basing this loosely off of a plant about 3 miles from my house, (Its visible from Route 80 by the Utica exit in IL.) When I was going to take pics of the plant, there used to be a portable unit about a half mile down the road from it, but it is now gone. Must have just been there to help when they were redoing I-80 a few years back. Ill post more when I get the rest done.
