Milling a road is the process of removing the top layer of asphalt and/or concrete to prepare for a new layer of material. This is often done before re-paving a road with asphalt, as it creates a smoother surface for the new material to adhere to.
Milling machinery is used to remove the pavement. There are several types of milling machines, and each is suited for different applications.
Depending on the project location, milling can be done day or night. Night is preferred in high-traffic areas when traffic is lighter, which makes it easier and a little safer for workers on site since they won’t have as much noise distractions from passing cars or trucks traveling along nearby roads.
Paving a road is grading the surface. This means grading the surface to the desired level, so that it is even and ready for paving. The grading process smooth out bumps and hills, and to create a level surface for a long-lasting new surface.
After grading, the next step is paving. Asphalt is used primarily for most road and drive applications. Asphalt is a type of pavement that is made up of crushed stone and hot tar. It is durable and weather-resistant, and it can be used for both highways and residential roads, and forms a smooth surface that can be driven on.
