The Mississippi DOT was looking to repair an asphalt overlay on a concrete base. In their efforts to choose the best reinforcement possible, MDOT decided to do a trial project with FORTA-FI®. One half of the road was paved with polymer only and the other half with polymer and FORTA-FI®.
A one year follow up was completed and the results speak for themselves. The half of the highway reinforced with FORTA-FI® shows significantly less cracking compared to the control section. By reinforcing with FORTA-FI®, the owner is able to increase the longevity of this major highway.
- Extended Pavement Life
- Reduced Rutting & Raveling
- Reduced Cracking
