Why Choose Asphalt?Monday, January 11, 2021
There are many reasons why asphalt pavement has become the preferred choice of road pavement material. Most roads are constructed in layers, with each layer playing a part in delivering the best infrastructure possible. When asphalt pavement is used it brings numerous benefits that all can enjoy.
Asphalt pavements are perpetual and have the ability to last forever when designed properly. Routine maintenance is essential for anything that is used on a regular basis. Our roads are no exception. By choosing asphalt, the maintenance can be done quickly with minimal traffic disruption. Using asphalt on our roads can significantly improve the ride quality and fuel consumption of vehicles traveling these roads and contribute to the longevity of the road.
Asphalt pavement provides a smoother surface. A smooth surface reduces damage to the pavement, necessitating fewer repairs. It improves fuel efficiency and reduces wear and tear on vehicles, making the choice for asphalt a great economical decision. Finally, paving roads and highways with asphalt significantly reduces the noise generated by the tire/pavement interface providing for a quieter ride experience for the motorist.
Faster Project Completions
Paving with asphalt cuts construction project time significantly. As a result, traffic flows more smoothly and the impact on commerce is minimized. Asphalt paving projects can be planned and carried out to take advantage of off-peak periods, like nights and weekends. Asphalt is ready for traffic right after it is compacted and cooled, which means better traffic flow, minimized closures, and happier motorists.
Economical and Adaptable
Asphalt is a low-cost building material. It is less expensive, not just in actual cost, but also in terms of the time it takes to complete construction projects. It is adaptable in that asphalt is a reliable weather resistance material and can be designed for low and high traffic conditions. It can withstand the harshest of weather and the heaviest of semi-trailers. Asphalt can be designed to fit a specific purpose.
Asphalt’s safety feature is related to its smooth-like finish. It offers drivers skid resistance and reduces splashback while providing a better visual distinction between road markings. Asphalt also helps keep roads free from ice and snow.
Asphalt is a recycled material, it can be used over and over, and its life cycle never ends. Asphalt roads can be dug up and then re-used again. This makes asphalt a wise choice when choosing road material. When we use asphalt, we are preserving our natural resources by reusing the same material over again.
