NYC Best Asphalt Contest
Aug 05, 2015
PIX11 in New York reports that the NYC Department of Transportation evaluation of three crumb rubber asphalt mixes has reached the 6-month mark. NYC DOT reports that the mixtures performed well through the harsh winter. Crews are watching for cracks, rutting and raveling in the regular and rubberized surfaces. The agency is measuring traffic noise and says readings are down an average 30 percent with the wet process performing slightly better than the dry process.
The test section is along a stretch of West Fingerboard Road between Steuben Street and Radcliff Road on Staten Island. Trap Rock Industries incorporated Evotherm warm mix technology into each rubberized asphalts mix design to improve workability and reduce environmental emissions.
