K&L Industries had the exciting opportunity to work on an asphalt paving and trench paving project for downtown Portland. The trenches and asphalt on Burnside street in downtown Portland needed repair. There were a lot of holes that posed as a safety risk for drivers and pedestrians.
The city inspectors invited K&L Industries as well as several other asphalt paving contractors to bid on the job and we were selected. We had to work within the city’s timeframe, which required us to work during non-busy periods and we had to have it scheduled within a certain amount of time, which was no problem for us. We scheduled to patch with asphalt that was 8” deep and do a mill and pave of the top 2” with hot asphalt.
We started out by grinding the pavement in each area then swept and cleaned the area. We prepped the spots for new asphalt and then poured on the new asphalt. Finally, we performed a maximum compression with a roller. The city inspectors reached out to us afterward to tell us that the milling came out perfect and they were well pleased with how smooth it was. They were also thankful we made the job possible within their timeframe.
Thank you, City of Portland, for entrusting K&L Industries with this asphalt paving project.
