Asphalt Roads are Safe
Smooth asphalt roads give vehicle tires superior contact with the road, improving safety.
Open Graded Friction Course
Open-graded asphalt allows rainwater to drain through the pavement surface, reducing the amount of splash and spray kicked up by vehicles.
Asphalt moves traffic along
Asphalt pavements are faster to construct and rehabilitate. In crowded urban areas, where closing a road for rehabilitation or reconstruction would dump increased traffic on to neighboring routes, asphalt is the answer. Highways and roads can be milled for recycling, then overlaid, during off-peak hours. An entire freeway can be resurfaced without commuters ever being inconvenienced.
