This process rebuilds pavement by“recycling” the existing asphalt. Existing asphalt and base materials are pulverized using a specialized machine called a reclaimer. The resulting material is then used to resurface the street.
Reclamation is one of the most commonly used road rehabilitation methods and can increase the roadway’s lifespan for decades. Where necessary, there may be work done to repair orreplace a section of curb or sidewalk, or a driveway. In those cases, work will be done prior to the street work.
