Roads are intended for the safe and efficient transport of people and goods. Asphalt is the proven choice for roads. Ninety-four percent of all paved surfaces in the United States are paved with asphalt. Why is asphalt the number one choice by engineers worldwide?

Knowing how to maintain and care for your asphalt can ensure durability, longevity, and quality. Look at these tips for basic solutions to common asphalt problems. Without regular asphalt maintenance, water, sun, and traffic cause asphalt to erode. Although a solid foundation, quality asphalt mix, and professional installation can increase the lifespan of your pavement, it still needs regular attention and care.
The need to be an environmental steward is critical, now more than ever. Bituminous Roadways, Inc. has a long history of caring for natural resources by recycling asphalt pavement. Since the early 1970’s, Bituminous Roadways has been incorporating recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) into newly produced asphalt mixtures. This sustainability practice has many economic, environmental and societal impacts.
Introducing BIORESTOR®, a 100 percent natural, agricultural-based, clear, spray-on sealer designed to protect new asphalt surfaces from the effects of oxidizing and aging.
Porous Asphalt pavement offers developers and planners a new tool in their toolbox for managing storm water. These pavements, used mostly for parking lots, allow water to drain through the pavement surface into the stone recharge bed and infiltrate into the soils below the pavement, thus replacing impermeable surfaces for parking lots, roads, walking/biking paths and other applications. A typical porous pavement has an open-graded surface over an underlying stone bed allowing the infiltration process.
HiMA, or Highly Modified Asphalt, can benefit your asphalt projects in Minnesota. Highly Modified Asphalt (HiMA) is a new SBS polymer technology for asphalt paving. The polymer loading is over twice the typical modified asphalt, however it is easily workable and very manageable in the field.
Foamed Warm Mix Asphalt is the generic term for a variety of technologies that allow the producers of hot-mix asphalt pavement material to lower the temperatures at which the material is mixed and placed on the road.
