Route 383 – Rochester, NY

Rochester, NY - 2015

Project Description

NY District 4 wanted to find a substitute for their costly deep mill repair used to fix their transverse reflective cracking problem caused by an old (1930s) concrete base. FORTA-FI® was placed in the driving lane of Route 383 – this section of highway experiences heavy truck traffic, 70% of which is in the driving lane. The old way of construction required a 6” deep mill to be filled with polymerized asphalt. The fiber side was simply a 2” mill/fill and was completed in about 2-3 weeks. On this project, there were over 17 locations where the control side cracked and the fiber side did not. Using FORTA-FI® saved the project over 4 weeks of construction time, in lieu of the deep mill repair.
