Hot Work on a Hot Day

Construction and repair to Six Mile Road began in earnest this week.  The segment in Alpine Township is utilizing a process called: Hot-in-Place Recycling. This is a process widely used in Indiana and Illinois but it will be the first time the Kent County Road Commission is using this technique. The process allows the existing asphalt to be heated, scarified, screeded (grinded?) and rolled.  This saves costs in not having to carry the existing asphalt away as it recycles in place.
