Summer Heat, Buckling Roads And You
This summer has been brutal on both old roads and new roadway repair. With extreme heat extending for several days throughout the country, the roads begin to buckle. When a road buckles, it cracks and shifts in an attempt to release pressurized stress caused by trapped hot air from underneath. The unfortunate part for roadway construction crews is that this can happen to new construction just as easily as old roads, which means that the crews have to go back and repair the fresh construction.
