This project wasn’t a big production job for American Pavement Preservation. They had an application rate of 14 pounds per square yard of dry aggregate. The crew completed 10-15,000 square yards a day due to the detail work of the project. “We didn’t want to complete this project in a big hurry because we wanted to make it perfect,” Reimschiissel says. “There was a lot of hand work because it is a residential community with cul-de-sacs.”
At the end of the day after applying the slurry seal, the crew would roll the surface with a rubber tire roller five to six passes to smooth the surface. The crew also swept the project twice to pick up any loose aggregate.
While every project requires attention to detail, this project required an additional focus to achieving success. “There was a great intensity with the guys knowing everything on this project needed to be perfect,” Reimschissel says. “We made sure there were no mishaps on scheduling, and people were more focused on making sure it went well.”
