Glen David Drive

O'Hara Township, PA - 2012

Project Description

Glen David Drive in O’Hara Township is a heavily cracked residential cul-de-sac that leads to Chapel Gate Swim Club. The O’Hara Township Engineer was looking to extend the life of the pavements and reduce reflective and alligator cracking. The pilot project using FORTA-FI® split the road down the middle. One lane has a 3” leveling course and a 1-1/2” wearing course without fiber, while the other lane uses FORTAfied® asphalt for both layers.

Update

After 4 years, the FORTAfied® asphalt shows minimal signs of cracking compared to the asphalt with no fiber.
