The right kind of lift: Strategy selection + quality + teamwork = road rehab success

An economically feasible paving method for rapidly and successfully adding years of life to degraded arteries has been evaluated by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) for the past several years. It consists of the use, primarily in the southwestern part of the state, of a single-lift asphalt overlay preceded by a thin asphalt course for its road rehabilitation projects. This article details the thin-lift overlay of an 11-mile stretch of U.S. 160 in the San Juan National Forest in Colorado.
