A road project in Atascadero that began in July is done. The Atascadero Avenue Road Rehabilitation Project involved a 1.6 mile stretch of Atascadero Avenue between Morro Road to Southwest of San Gabriel Road.
The process was the first of its kind in the city, called Cold In-Place Asphalt Recycling. Instead of hauling away the old asphalt, they grind and pulverize it, mix it with new material and immediately repave with it.
Atascadero mayor Bob Kelley says a final layer of conventional hot mix asphalt finishes the job prior to striping and the installation of signage. The process provided the added benefit of reducing the need for hundreds of asphalt and gravel truck trips through the neighborhood, resulting in reduced traffic congestion and greenhouse gasses usually associated with this kind of project.
