Lincoln Avenue Side-by-Side Wearing Course & Binder

Grove City, PA - 2017


The Borough of Grove City, PA completed a side-by-side trial project (control vs. fiber) on Lincoln Avenue from Forest Drive to E. Washington Street. The road was first milled and then filled. One half of the street was reinforced with FORTA-FI® in the 2” binder and the 1” wearing course while the other side used a traditional mix without fiber. Over the next several months/years, both sides of Lincoln Avenue will be analyzed and the data will be compared. The results will indicate the success of the fiber vs. traditional mix.
