2014 Street Mill and Overlay Projects
Description of Work
Schedule:  City Projects mid-September through the end of October.

The mill and overlay process is done under traffic. Milling takes one to two days in a given street segment. The overlay is placed in one day, or possibly two days depending on width of roadway and traffic conditions. Parking is restricted in the immediate area of the work. Parking restriction signs are posted 24 hours prior to work starting for both the milling and the overlay operations. 

The original asphalt pavement is milled-off a depth of 1 ½” to 2" the full width gutter to gutter of the street. The machine used is called a milling machine.

Traffic may travel on the milled surface. Temporary traffic controls will be put in place after the milling is completed. Within a few days, the paving crew will show up to place a new asphalt overlay pavement.

Before the pavement is placed, the surface of the milled pavement is covered with a liquid asphalt tack coat to bond the old and new pavements. The tack coat is applied by hand or by distributor tanker truck.

The new asphalt overlay is placed at a depth of 1 ½” to 2" using a machine called a paver. Hot asphalt (350 degrees F) is delivered in by dump trucks from the asphalt plant. Each truck carries about 10 tons per load. The overlay crews can lay down 400 to 800 tons of asphalt per day.
