UDIT US 191 Overlay

Duchesne, UT - 2015


This project included the rehabilitation of approximately 12 miles of US191 using a 1.5” FORTA-FI® reinforced overlay. During the design process, Utah Department of Transportation engineers had actually determined that a thicker overlay would be required due to an increasing amount of heavy truck traffic in the area. Roadway width limitations made this impossible, however, so FORTA-FI® was added to the ½” PG64-34 mix to increase the durability and longevity of the 1.5” asphalt lift. The FORTA-FI® will not only add structural capacity to the new section, accommodating additional trucks, but it also will slow the propagation of reflective cracks, meaning less future work for maintenance crews.
