Forward-thinking municipalities, counties, and state DOT are broadening the use of multiple tools in the pavement preservation toolbox. What has risen to the top of the list for many agencies, (now over 200), is the use of HA5 High Density Mineral Bond.

Fourteen years ago, the city made the difficult decision to focus the budget away from the worst roads and toward the best roads. The strategy required educating the public, and it has paid off. The results are better roads with less of a financial burden on taxpayers. Your city can do it too.
