Cost Effectiveness

Asphalt can be constructed at night, saving commuters from costly delays.

Everything can be done overnight, without inconveniencing commuters. Asphalt work can be planned so that the crews work in off-peak periods only. This means that folks may drive home from work on a Tuesday night, then find a brand-new, smooth pavement when they drive to work Wednesday morning – and they’ve never even seen an orange barrel! Only with asphalt can a “stealth contractor” give the traveling public a great new pavement, literally overnight.
