Remodeling & Paving
This involves shaping, reestablishing grade and compacting the surface of the road and then applying a compacted granulated base from aggregate we crush ourselves. This requires a large fleet of motor graders as well as compaction equipment and people. Rain fall can halt progress in this phase for one to several days.
Emulsion prime oil is then applied to bond the Hot Mix Asphalt to the road surface. Then, our asphalt plant manufactures a specified hot asphalt mix using a blend of bitumen and aggregates that we crush ourselves. A paving crew places and compacts the asphalt mix according to the specified, engineered design. Higher capacity asphalt plants are used in these situations as conditions are conducive to high productivity.
