Asphalt Maintenance & Paving Inc. (AMP) recently completed, “Project: Eco-Friendly Asphalt Paving Spring Valley WI.” This project was centered on sustainable pavement restoration. The client’s budget constraints paved the way for an innovative approach: recycled asphalt. This eco-friendly paving project not only breathed new life into deteriorated pavement but also showcased the benefits of crushed asphalt.
Sustainable Pavement Transformation: Spring Valley’s Restoration with Recycled Asphalt
AMP‘s eco-friendly approach to restoring paved areas in Spring Valley, Wisconsin, involved a strategic combination of milling and recycling, using existing materials to create new pavement. This innovative recycling and paving process included:
Milling and Demolition: Existing pavement was milled and demolished, creating a clean canvas for the upcoming improvements. The site was re-graded and compacted like before a traditional parking lot installation.
Recycling and Repaving: Instead of conventional hot-mix, crushed asphalt reclaimed from the milling and demolition process was repurposed to pave new areas on the Spring Valley property. It is applied to the area and compacted using heavy machinery to ensure proper bonding and stability. The compaction process may involve rolling the material to achieve the desired density. Once the recycled material is compacted, the surface is finished to create smooth pavement. This may involve additional compaction and leveling to achieve the desired appearance and functionality.
This innovative approach saved the client money and contributed to the reduction of materials needed for fresh paving. Choosing crushed asphalt installation over hot mix offers numerous advantages:
- Cost-Effective: Recycled materials are a more budget-friendly option, providing significant cost savings compared to traditional hot-mix alternatives.
- Environmental Sustainability: Using recycled materials reduces the demand for new raw materials, contributing to a more sustainable and eco-friendly pavement solution.
- Durability: With proper installation that includes compaction, recycled materials can be just as long-lasting as hot paving methods.
- Quick Installation: The process of recycling and repaving with crushed asphalt is often quicker than traditional methods, minimizing disruption to the site.
Spring Valley’s commitment to sustainable paving solutions was met with success. This recycled asphalt project not only addressed the immediate need for pavement restoration but also demonstrated the property owner’s dedication to environmentally conscious choices.
