Pittsfield has announced a schedule of Cold-in-Place paving projects as part of the city’s 2020 Street Improvement Project.  The work will begin this Thursday on Elizabeth Street…Friday move to Dorchester Ave…and Monday August 3rd, move to Dawnes Ave.  The city is requiring no on-street parking at those locations during the work period.

According to the Cornell University website, Cold-in-Place recycling is a method of removing and reusing the existing asphalt surface. It involves grinding off the top 2 to 5 inches of the existing asphalt surface and mixing the crushed asphalt with an asphalt recycling agent, and placing it back down with a paver. Often specific sized aggregate is added to correct the deficiencies found in the existing asphalt material. Asphalt deficiencies are determined by sampling and testing the existing asphalt material prior to beginning the process.
