Colony Trials

Chester, VA - 2017


VDOT placed three different mixes on various subdivision streets throughout Chester, VA. The roads all have similar traffic loads, with similar fatigue and alligator cracking issues, and run parallel to each other. Two of the roads were used as a control and the third was paved using FORTA-FI®. The first road used a 9 mm conventional surface mix (Petersburg Street). The second road used 9 mm natural sand mix (Richmond Street). The third road used a 9 mm surface mix with FORTA-FI® (Winfree Street). The owners were very happy with how the FORTA-FI® looked and how easily it was mixed and placed.
