GlasGrid GG200 Farmington

United States , Farmington
Installation date

Application

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.
