- Cold-in-Place (CIR) Recycling: The process of removing the existing asphalt surface, mixing the crushed asphalt with a recycling agent, and reapplying the mixture back on the street surface.
- Micromilling: The process of removing a thin top layer of failing asphalt.
- Microsurfacing: A thin layer (3/8”) preventative maintenance treatment composed of an oil and crushed rock mixture, used to extend the life of the road.
- HMA Overlay: Adding Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) back to the street as part of the resurfacing process.
- Remove and Replace: The process of cutting segments of damaged, warped, or collapsed asphalt out of the roadway and filling them back in before resurfacing or sealing begins.
- Wedge Cut/Conform Cut: Removing the thin portion of the street adjacent to the curb line in order to allow for the smooth application of pavement material to the edge of the street.
