Hot-in-Place Asphalt Recycling in Waukesha County

Posted by Sean Wolf on Oct 7, 2013

The Waukesha County roads that are part of this project are about 7-8" thick. It can be costly and time-consuming to tear out an entire existing road and pave back in that thick. It was determined by Waukesha County Engineering that removal of 6” of the existing pavement and patching distressed areas would be necessary. Those areas are milled 6” deep and an asphalt mix designed for Waukesha County is paved in two layers with nuclear density testing to make sure it is the right density and performs properly over time.

To save costs over traditional paving of a first binder layer, hot-in-place recycling can be done, a sustainable and eco-friendly asphalt paving method.

Asphalt Pulverizing - An Asphalt Recycling Process

Posted by Sean Wolf on Mar 26, 2013

How do you keep roads and parking lots in good condition cost-effectively?  We’ve already talked about many of our routine maintenance suggestions, such as filling in cracks and sealcoating, but sometimes a surface is too damaged for these small actions – in these cases, it would take more money and time to repair than it would to perform a full rehabilitation.  But asphalt pulverizing offers a very economical way to fully rehabilitate a road or lot with minimal traffic disruption. It’s also a great way to save on paving materials. 

What is pulverization?

Pulverizing is a process that grinds up existing surface layers right in place, blending the asphalt layers with any sub-layers, essentially creating a new paving mix using all the old materials. No pavement is hauled away, saving costs on excavating and trucking, and rarely does new material have to be brought in (though sometimes additives or a new overlay are suggested).  Asphalt pulverizing solves most common problems, such as severe cracking and sharp edges created by continuous traffic (called “polishing”).
