Earthwork & Paving

With an earthwork & paving contractors license, you will be able to dig, move, and place material forming the surface of the earth, other than water, in such a manner that a cut, fill, excavation, grade, trench, backfill, or tunnel (if incidental thereto) can be executed, including the use of explosives for these purposes.

The earthwork & paving classification includes the mixing, fabricating and placing of paving and any other surfacing materials.
