Application GlasGrid GG200 Farmington
Road required drainage work on each side of 2-lane road. Work resulted in 5.5 m of existing ACC at center and new full depth repair on each side. Once settlement was completed, much of the new ACC was removed and replaced back to existing grade. Self-adhesive geogrid ADFORS GlasGrid 200 placed over each construction joint located approximately 2,74 m from centerline on each side of the road. New wearing course placed full width.
FIRST INSPECTION: April 2012, you can see part of reinforced road in perfect condition versus cracked unreinforced road.
SECOND INSPECTION: October 2016, reinforced road in very good condition.
LAST INSPECTION: August 2018, reinforce road in good condition 9 years after rehabilitation. Longitudinal joints showing cracks - locally repaired/filled by appropriate material, no full road width repair needed.
