Asphalt paving is any road surface that is paved with asphalt. One way in which asphalt is used is for overlays (also referred to as “capping” or “resurfacing”). Instead of completely removing the existing pavement, this process uses the existing base, and places a new layer of asphalt over a deteriorating surface.
Next, asphalt paving can be used for removal and replacement. This process requires the entire existing surface (including base layers) to be removed and is then replaced with all new asphalt. You will also see asphalt being used for new construction.
Most commonly, asphalt is used for driveways, parking lots, speed bumps, and catch basin repair.
