Claremont Avenue

Ashland, OH - 2012


FORTA-FI® fiber-reinforcement for asphalt was specified by the City of Ashland for a high traffic roadway overlay in the downtown business district. The wearing and intermediate courses were milled and then replaced with a new wearing course, three-dimensionally reinforced with FORTA-FI® high-tensile strength fibers. The asphalt was placed at night to decrease business interruptions, and a portable fiber feeder was used at their production plant to introduce the FORTA-FI® into the drum plant. The City engineer is looking to reduce the cracking and improve the rutting performance of the asphalt used for this busy street overlay rehabilitation project.
