2017 Road Maintenance Program

 

2017 Road Maintenance Program

 

The 2017 Road Maintenance program will treat numerous surface treatments on our hard surfaced roads.  The information below outlines our current plans for the Boone County Highway network.  Please note that this program is subject to change depending on unforeseen budget or road condition changes.

Hot Mix Asphalt Overlay

 

A hot mix asphalt overlay, often referred to as “repaving” or “resurfacing” is a maintenance technique utilized when the condition of the roadway surface is in fair to poor condition.  Typically, the Boone County Highway Department bids Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) resurfacing projects to contractors who specialize in asphalt paving.  Due to budget constraints, Boone County does not typically have enough highway funding to reconstruct the entire roadway, therefore, our resurfacing projects often include some deep patching to repair areas of pavement which have signs of deterioration in the lower levels of existing pavement.  The worst areas are identified and patched prior to the final resurface coat being applied to the pavement.

 

In 2017, the Boone County Highway Department received a $1,000,000 Community Crossings grant from the Indiana Department of Transportation.  This 50/50 matching grant program allowed the Boone County Highway Department to leverage $1,000,000 of local tax dollars and enabled us to resurface approximately 18 miles of roadways throughout the entire county.

Chip & Seal

 

The purpose of Chip & Seal is to protect water from infiltrating into our hard surfaced roadways and provide a new skid resistant surface on the roadways.  This process, which is performed by our own crews, is one of the most cost effective pavement treatments for roadways and extends the life of the County’s roadway assets.  The Boone County Highway Department may place either a single layer of new chip and seal or a double layer chip and seal, depending on the current condition of the roadway.

Cold Mix Asphalt Overlay

 

A cold mix asphalt overlay, often referred to as “repaving” or “resurfacing” is an alternative to a hot mix overlay on low volume roadways.  This surface treatment is completed in its entirety by the Boone County Highway Department, including the mixing, trucking and placement (paving) of the material.  Due to the porosity of Cold Mix Asphalt, a chip and seal is placed the year following its initial installation.  Cold mix asphalt is not a lesser product than Hot Mix Asphalt.  In fact, many of the County’s CMA overlays outlast Hot Mix overlays.

Asphalt Rejuvenator

 

Asphalt rejuvenation is a new process being tested by the Boone County Highway Department in 2017.  Rejuvenators are liquid products that are sprayed on and then absorbed or penetrated into an existing asphalt surface for the purpose of restore many of the components lost in asphalt pavements due to sun and wear.  This process is utilized on roadways that are in good condition and helps extend the life of the pavement.

Crack Fill

 

Water penetration through pavement surface cracks one of the most common reasons for premature pavement failures.  Therefore, crack filling is the most cost-effective tool to reduce water penetration into pavements and extend the life of our paved roadways.  This treatment is typically used on our roadways that are in good condition and is applied during the winter months.  The roadways to be crack filled are selected annually based on the condition rating inspections and assessments.

Microsurface

 

Microsurfacing is a preventative maintenance technique used to help preserve and protect the underlying pavement structure and provide a new driving surface.  Roads chosen for microsurfacing are often our subdivision streets with low to moderate distress and narrow crack widths.  It consists of the application of a mixture of water, asphalt emulsion, aggregate (very small crushed rock), and chemical additives to an existing asphalt concrete pavement surface and extends the pavement surface before a hot mix asphalt overlay must be performed.   The Boone County Highway Department selects the roadways to be microsurfaced annually after the pavement condition ratings are completed.
