Before paving the section of the parking lot, Frank Bros. Inc., Janesville, WI, had to remove the existing pavement. They used an excavator and skid steer to remove the old pavement.
After the pavement was removed, a dozer and motor grader were used to fill in the sub-base and level the sand.
The crew used a Caterpillar AP-1055B paver to place the new asphalt.
As the paving crew continued to lay down the mat, a crew member followed with an Ingersoll Rand roller to compact the asphalt.
Another crew member followed the paver and the roller with a walk-behind compaction plate to ensure all edges along the sidewalk and parking lot were compacted properly.
The day after paving was complete, Nu-Line Striping, Orfordville, WI, came in to complete the pavement marking. The crew of three started by placing stringline and chalking marks where the new parking stalls would be.
Using a Graco walk-behind striper and stringline, the marking crew moved up and down the parking lot painting the lines on both the new asphalt and restriping the lines on the section of the parking lot that had not needed repaving.
After three days of work and a bit of rainy weather, Cygnus employees had a repaved parking lot free of potholes and with fresh new parking stall lines.
Cygnus recently repaved and striped a portion of its parking lot so we took our camera out on the job to get a few on-the-job photos to share with our readers. Check out the photos to see how the job went.
