Lafayette Consolidated Government’s Public Works Department recently began a type of road construction in the Saint Streets area called Asphalt Road Preservation (ARP). The goal behind an ARP project is to improve the condition of the existing pavement and extend the pavement’s life. ARP rejuvenates and seals dried, oxidized, and cracked asphalt pavement. Utilizing the ARP method will save taxpayers money by significantly reducing the need for more costly base reconstruction and reducing the chance of lengthy construction delays.

The Saint Streets area ARP project requires two phases of construction. Phase I involves the application of emulsified asphalt and aggregate to the road surface to seal the pavement. This phase is a quick operation and should allow normal traffic to resume within an hour of the application. Phase I of this project ended last week. Residents may experience loose aggregate for a few days, and reducing traffic speeds is recommended during the initial set time for the aggregate. The loose aggregate is scheduled for removal from the project site within the next few days.

Once the curing of Phase I application is complete, crews will move into Phase II. This phase will include a micro-surfacing overlay of the roadway, serving as the finished riding surface. This project should be complete next week if weather permits.
