This resurfacing project in Pine Township, PA was done on a residential cul-de-sac that had suffered years of reflective and alligator cracking. The objective was to compare the performance of a FORTA-FI® reinforced mix with a traditional mix, without fiber. The road was milled 1-1/2” and a 1-1/2” wearing course was placed, one side reinforced with a FORTA-FI® mix and one side with traditional asphalt, without fiber.
The project was surveyed in 2017 and updated pictures were taken. The side of the road reinforced with FORTA-FI® performed significantly better than the side of the road with traditional asphalt.
- Reduce Cracking
