North Carolina DOT: Making an Old Road New

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

There are several steps involved in the removal and replacement of the highway surface and sub-structure. 

  • Shifting traffic — Crews establish a work zone and work with paint and barrier wall crews.
  • Demolishing the road — There are several parts involved in this process and they include milling, or removing the asphalt, breaking the concrete, moving the material out of the way and then crushing it.
  • Pipe installation — This involves digging up and removing old pipe and installing new pipe.
