Adams County using recycling for resurfacing
WEST UNION, Ohio | A specialized method for resurfacing will be taking place in Adams County on Sept. 24.
According to Adams County Engineer David Hook, crews from the Gallagher Asphalt Company are scheduled to begin hot-in-place recycling of the asphalt on Cedar Mills Road in the Brush Creek community.
Hot-in-place recycling yields the same benefits as traditional resurfacing, by using existing materials, officials said.
The old surface is retrieved and processed in a train like method of processing and relaying of materials on the roadway, officials said.
“As our budget dollars continue to be stretched, we are continually looking for new and innovative ways to perform our commitments to the citizens of Adams County,” Hook said. “Hot-in-place recycling of existing asphalt pavement is not only environmentally friendly, it is also a method that we anticipate will help us to be more cost effective in our work.”
