Bristol Enacts New Asphalt Recycling Method — Will Rehab Seven Roads in One Week

It’s summer and in Bristol, that means resurfacing and repairing bumpy and cracked streets.

Rehabilitating asphalt-paved roads has been growing in popularity thanks to the availability of more cost-effective solutions. One industry-leading method is hot-in-place recycling (HIR), an onsite method for deteriorated blacktop pavement rehabilitation.

Hot in place asphalt recycling consists of heating the existing roadway pavement and compacting the asphalt to form new roadway pavement.

The machine used during the hot in place asphalt recycling process generates a considerable amount of heat and can on occasion, cause noticeable leaf discoloration; much the same as occurs each fall.

This is a temporary condition that results in no permanent damage to the tree.

Once the hot in place recycling work is complete, the roadway will be treated with an additional surface treatment.

The method is so effective, the city will be able to rehab Corbin Ridge, Payton Terrace, Brandon Run, Cameron Drive, Tyler Way, Tiffany Lane and Doris Road in one week.
