Cost benefits of using EZ Street Asphalt.
EZ Street Asphalt replaces traditional cold mix as a permanent solution to repair utility cuts.
There’s a better way for utility cut and trench reinstatements. EZ Street cold asphalt can be utilized as a permanent trench patching, overlay, or edge repair material if proper installation procedures are followed. As with any material, optimum placement of a well compacted, solid, unyielding base is imperative under the EZ Street material in order to avoid trench failure that can result from settling, rutting, or shoving. EZ Street cold asphalt can be expected to consolidate up to 40% before maximum density is achieved. Install in 25 mm lifts.
EZ Street cold asphalt can serve as a permanent material around manhole covers, water valves, drains, and catch basin grates if installed properly. Achieving adequate compaction should be the primary focus as the hardware can cause significant compaction obstacles and may tend to shift under traffic. It is recommended that the EZ Street material be left slightly higher than the surrounding hard surface in order to accommodate secondary compaction as a result of traffic flow.
