Romanstone Paver Streetscape - Springfield, IL

Romanstone concrete pavers continue to be called for to help transform Capitol Avenue in Springfield, IL into the most attractive and durable streetscape in the Illinois state capitol.

The pavers used for this ongoing streetscape are the Romanstone Holland-Stone 80mm interlocking concrete pavers. See links below for additional information.

A wide variety of standard and custom Romanstone color blends were used to create the desired patterns and required roadway markings. See below for a list of colors and color blends along with examples of how they were used on this project.

Midwest Color Blend (Aprons between Street and Sidewalk)
Harvest Color Blend (Streets)
Newtown Yellow Color (Center Lines)
Sandstone Color (Crosswalks)
Limestone Color (Accent Bands, Railroad Crossing Markings)
Slate Color (Double Solider Course Accent Bands)
