Milling Asphalt Concrete Pavement

Milling asphalt concrete pavement, uses closely spaced diamond saw blades mounted on a rotating shaft, to remove a thin layer of the concrete surface to correct for faults at joints and crack locations and correct for surface defects, such as wheel path rutting. As such, milling of the asphalt results in re-profiling the pavement and improves the pavement’s ride quality. Milling removes bumps, re-profiles pavements, removes surface defects, and restores the pavement to a smooth surface. Because the hardness of the aggregate will influence the grinding operation, identify the type of aggregate in the asphalt pavement when the work is to be contracted. Limit grinding to small, localized areas.
