Project Description

New Paving Technique for Woodcroft Parkway
The City is using a technique that NC Department of Transportation employs to resurface Woodcroft Parkway, with the advantage of costing less than traditional paving methods. This technique is used to help bridge over a cracked layer of asphalt to extend its useful life. The surface is prepared by milling away a portion of the existing asphalt at the edges of the street. Next a layer of liquid asphalt covered with a layer of small stone is placed. The exposed gravel is inconvenient, but this is an intermediate step in the process. The final step is placement of fresh asphalt over the entire surface for a smooth finish. 

Overall Project Description
This project involves the furnishing of all materials, labor, equipment, tools, etc. unless otherwise specified, for the repair and repaving of various streets throughout the City of Durham.
