FAQS about Municipal Paving
Municipal paving involves the installation and maintenance of asphalt surfaces that are under a local government’s control. This includes streets, roads, roadways, paths, sidewalks, highways, and surfaces for schools, universities, libraries, and other government buildings.
In most cases, the paving of streets and sidewalks is the responsibility of municipalities and local governments. Government officials and staff will determine that new paving is needed before hiring a local asphalt paving contractor to install new surfaces throughout the community.
Like residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional paving, there are several different paving methods that may be used for municipal paving—depending on the application. Typically, roadways and parking lots are constructed using asphalt or concrete. On occasion, gravel or interlocking pavers may be used.
To fix municipal asphalt, a local paving company must first assess the damage and identify the best course of action—whether it’s crack filling, patching, resurfacing, or another option. The asphalt contractor will then arrive on site to perform the repairs and redirect traffic until the surface can be used again
Whenever new paving is required, chances are that traffic may need to be temporarily redirected and neighbours may be subjected to higher noise levels. However, hiring a professional asphalt paving company, such as FX Stone and Paving Ltd., will help keep any disruptions to a minimum.
The amount of time it takes to pave a road ultimately depends on the type of paving that is required and the size of the project. Resurfacing a single street may only take a few days while installing a new highway system can take upwards of several months to complete.
Asphalt paving contractors use several methods to ensure that an asphalt surface is equipped with proper drainage. They may slope the pavement towards drainage points, use porous asphalt mixes, or install new drains and retaining walls.
Asphalt is more susceptible to water damage than concrete, and therefore, it needs a slope of at least .5% – 1% and as much as 1.5% – 2% in order for water to run off the surface properly.
