In an effort to extend pavement life, Pine Township decided to use FORTA-FI® in a side-by-side trial project. The project involved a comparison of FORTA-FI® reinforced mix with that of a traditional mix. Pennsylvania Township News magazine says, in its May 2017 issue, that Pine Township is ‘impressed enough with the cost benefits that it is planning to systematically repave all its roads with the product over the next decade’.
“For the last three or four years we have been using FORTA-FI®, a fiber additive that promises to extend the life of the asphalt, reduce cracking, and stretch our money further,” Pine Township manager Scott Anderson stated.
