About this project
Summary of work
4.5" CIR with 1.5" bituminous overlay and seal coat
Cold-in place recycle (CIR): cold-in place recycle consists of milling up in place bituminous pavement, crushing the materials, adding oil, remixing it, followed by re-laying the materials with a paver and compacting it.
A CIR is cost effective and environmentally friendly because it recycles existing materials and reduces trucking by not having to remove the material from the roadways while limiting the amount of new materials that need to be hauled in.
