Main Client Concerns:

  • Cost
  • Improvement of surface quality for residents
  • Appropriate milling and butt joint creation for a smooth transition surface from old to new

Wolf Paving Solution:

For this municipal road-paving job, Wolf Paving was required to consider the best option for paving to accommodate budget considerations. In addition, Wolf Paving would be tasked with transitioning in the new asphalt surface to the existing road, and residential and commercial driveways along the road.

It was determined that an asphalt overlay would be the best course of action to improve the roadway surface. An asphalt overlay would provide the municipality with 12 – 15 years of durability and cost significantly less than a complete removal and re-installation.

Municipal Asphlat Overlay Final Results:

The customer feedback on the final result was excellent. The project was completed on time and on budget with no unforeseen issues.
