FORTA-FI was chosen to repair the pavement at a Love’s Truck Stop in Tennessee. The parking lot and gas pumping areas were in need of several full depth patches throughout the property
utilizing a coarser surface type mixture. This project used 190 tons of FORTA-FI reinforced asphalt from the wearing to the base course at a 6 to 8-inch thickness. Before starting this project,
the contractors used the FORTA Little Shot to easily add bags of pre-cut FORTA-FI fiber to the asphalt mix with no changes to the mix design. The owners chose FORTA-FI to reduce rutting
because of the constant traffic that this location receives. They were also trying to reduce alligator cracking that was occurring due to the high-volume truck traffic at the truck stop. By replacing existing fiber from a FORTA competitor with FORTA-FI, Loves Truck Stop will see an increase in life of their parking lot.
