And, we’re experts with elevator paving, demolition and removals, and any job involving new construction. We also specialize in building clean, elegant pedestrian and bike paths.
We’re Tucson’s leader in windrow elevator paving, which allows extra volume of paving material to be laid very quickly. Very few paving companies have the equipment or experience to use this paving method, but Tucson Asphalt does.
Elevator paving lets us operate our pavers continuously without stopping, which means fast turnaround time and minimal waiting time for dump trucks at the work site. Elevator paving helps prevent aggregates from separating out of the asphalt mix.
And, this type of paving is also critically important anytime there are potential issues with temperature which might affect the application of hot asphalt.
Asphalt or concrete ?
A landmark study, conducted by Drs. Stephen A. Cross and Robert L. Parsons of the University of Kansas, demonstrated that over a 25-year period the yearly expenditures for concrete pavements were 2.4 times more costly than for asphalt pavements.
The same study also showed that the cost of concrete pavement over the long-term averaged about $2 million per four-lane mile, while the cost of asphalt pavement was only about $600,000 per four-lane mile.
