District 12 in Mount Holly, NC was in need of an overlay for a busy street that succumbed to reflective and alligator cracking. To address these issues, District 12 and its specifiers recommended the use of FORTA-FI® to prevent cracking and extend the overall pavement life. FORTA-FI® was added into the mix manually at 1-pound per ton for this 6” overlay. The fibers mixed and distributed evenly and required no extra equipment in order to incorporate it into the project.
After two years, the fiber reinforced lane is performing extremely well with no signs of rutting or cracking.
- Reduce Cracking
- Extension of Pavement Life
- No Additional Equipment Needed
