New concrete and asphalt pavement, sealcoating, crack repair, parking lot markings, pothole repair, asphalt overlays, curbing, milling and reclamation, ADA upgrades and parking lot signs are just a few of the pavement services commonly requested by property owners in Cynthiana, KY.
Cynthiana, KY -The History
Cynthiana was founded in 1793 on land donated by Robert Harrison. Traditional accounts claim that the town’s name was chosen to honor Harrison’s two daughters, Cynthia and Anna. Although the town is the seat of Harrison County, the county was not named for Robert Harrison. Instead, it was named in honor of Colonel Benjamin Harrison, a veteran of the American Revolution, early settler in the area and state legislator who framed the state’s constitution.
From the time of its founding until 1854, travel between Cynthiana and the outside world was arduous. For example, a trip to Cincinnati required an overland trek of 12 miles to reach Claysville; from Claysville, a boat or barge carried passengers and goods from the Licking River to the Ohio River. When the Covington and Lexington Railroad arrived in 1854, a round trip to Cincinnati could easily be completed in a single day. The railroad helped encourage growth, and by 1860, the population of Cynthiana exceeded 1,200, breaking the four-digit mark for the first time.
Paving Services in Cynthiana
Although property owners in Cynthiana require a variety of pavement-related services, some categories are requested more often than others.
• Asphalt paving can refer to an asphalt overlay or the construction of new pavement. The category also includes related services such as milling or the installation of speed humps. Paving services are often needed for constructing or replacing roads, parking lots, streets in subdivisions or highway expansions. See more information about Asphalt Paving
• Asphalt sealcoating and parking lot maintenance helps extend the life of the pavement while helping retain the property’s curb appeal. Automotive fluids, UV radiation and caustic chemicals can damage asphalt pavement. Sealcoating forms a protective barrier to help prevent these types of damages. It also rejuvenates the dark color for which asphalt pavement is famous and masks minor imperfections in the surface. As a result, pavement markings are more visible and attractive. Sealcoating is often applied before parking spaces and other markings are painted. See more information about Asphalt Sealcoating
• Asphalt repair can encompass any procedure performed to remediate pavement damage. The most common procedures are crack filling and pothole repairs, which are two important procedures to prevent water penetration and foundation damage. In many cases, timely crack repairs can prevent the formation of potholes. Compared to the expense of removing existing pavement and rebuilding the foundation, crack repair is an extremely economical way to ensure the maximum life of asphalt pavement.

• Concrete services include the installation of new concrete pavement, crack repairs, patches and the removal and replacement of damaged sections. Curbs, sidewalks, parking lots, wheelchair ramps and other ADA upgrades, loading ramps, walkways and driveways are some of the areas that often need concrete work performed.
