If you are responsible for reviewing bids for an asphalt paving project in your municipality, you are probably aware of the difficulties involved in selecting the right contractor. You are also aware that the citizens of your town or city have placed their trust in you to keep municipal streets and roads in safe, well-maintained condition while simultaneously ensuring that funds are spent appropriately. Furthermore, citizens want to make a favorable impression on visitors, so in addition to attractive thoroughfares, they expect all pavement associated with the city, such as parking lots at convention centers or arenas, to be in good condition. You have many responsibilities resting on your shoulders, but the professionals at APM can make your job easier.
Even if your budget is tight, you cannot afford to neglect needed repairs to your asphalt pavement. Potholes and cracks can place great areas of your pavement at risk from water infiltration, and traffic passing over damaged areas can worsen existing breaks in the pavement. APM offers a wide range of options for repairing asphalt pavement, including full-depth repairs, overlays and surface patches.
Storm Water Management
Water is no friend to your pavement. Improper drainage can allow water to collect on the surface of the pavement, eventually leading to damage. If runoff is not directed properly, it can carry automotive fluids, grease and other sediments to other areas, such as nearby parks or lawns, or depositing pollutants in nearby reservoirs, rivers or lakes. The experts at APM can help you plan your storm water system, including trench drains, catch basins, culverts and any other necessary components.
Pavement reinforcement can help delay potholes, cracking or alligatoring and extend the life of roads or parking lots. Reinforcement can help absorb the tension and pressure to which pavement is subjected by improving load distribution. It provides greater resistance to shoving, rutting and similar problems. APM has more than three decades of experience using chip and seal, fabric membrane systems, soil stabilization systems and S.A.M. interlayer systems for pavement reinforcement.
Asphalt milling is a precision process that can be used to remove existing pavement to a predetermined depth. It is commonly used to alter the pavement’s slope, create smoother transitions between adjacent surfaces, correct drainage issues or remove an entire area of asphalt pavement for foundation repairs. At APM, we have the equipment and highly trained personnel to provide milling services for jobs of any scope.
Whether you are building a new residential street or overlaying an existing concrete roadway, asphalt paving services from APM can help you get the job done quickly and at an attractive cost. Properly maintained asphalt pavement can provide a smooth ride for your citizens for 25 years or more.
APM also offers a number of other services for municipalities. We can sealcoat your asphalt pavement to improve its appearance and protect it, thereby increasing your return on your investment. We can stripe municipal parking lots, apply pavement markings and ensure that you are ADA-compliant. We also install curbing to enhance landscaping, direct runoff and define an area’s boundaries.
