Using CIR, SCDOT increases treated pavement area by 700% without increasing cost.
Choosing Cold In-Place Recycling (CIR) using foamed asphalt saved time and money.
The biggest advantage using this process was the shortened construction time and keeping the road open to traffic.
In Limerick Township, 30 miles outside Philadelphia-- one thing is clear—the Township takes their pavement preservation seriously.
As impressive, is the municipality's fundamental understanding that “mill & fill” is not as cost effective as pavement preservation—so much so that they are able to move most needed paving operations in-house.
Cold In-Place Recycling allowed Bobby Phillips, Roadway Superintendent for Jefferson County, Indiana, to restore Jackson Road, an ailing pavement in the Southeast corner of the state. This technology, new to Phillips and this region of Indiana, allowed him to also look to the future portion of the roadway’s life cycle. This was an opportunity to utilize innovative technology while also looking to the future for the pavement and the entire county as a whole network.
