Residential Roadways – Charleston, SC

Charleston, SC - October 2012

Project Description

South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) recognized that their cracked and deteriorated streets needed to be restored. The existing distresses for 4.5 miles of roadway was
repaved using a slurry seal mixture reinforced with Surface-EXT glass fiber, along with 380 tons of dry material. The fiber was easily chopped and quickly dispersed throughout the mix. The
Surface-EXT reinforced material was easily moved and placed with a rake without adverse effect on the burlap mop finish. This fiber support system resulted in a more durable road that opened to the public faster than expected.
