In-House Pavement Improvements Projects

Existing asphalt streets within Fayetteville city limits are on a master schedule to be repaved, resurfaced, and/or receive other necessary maintenance every 15 years. Following this maintenance cycle results in fewer complete street rebuilds, which have a significantly greater cost than an asphalt overlay.

An asphalt overlay is the application of a layer of paving to an existing paved surface. This increases structural capacity, promotes ride smoothness, improves exterior appearance and enhances safety by minimizing tripping hazards and controlling dust.

Asphalt milling is the process of removing an old layer of asphalt that can then be recycled with a milling machine. Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP), or old asphalt pavement, is removed, loaded into haul trucks, and transported for processing. The millings are sold to asphalt plants and recycled.
