Restores pavement to a uniform, even profile and removes all surface imperfections like bumps and ruts in the process.
When an area is milled and repaved, it is also commonly called a Mill and Pave.
Often times the sub-base under the pavement has failed or the current pavement has become too deteriorated where it is best to mill and re-pave the area.
This involves milling up the existing deteriorated asphalt pavement and fixing any sub-base failures and problems by re-grading, leveling, pulverizing, and milling to a specific depth. The specific depth to mill asphalt would be determined once the type of traffic and volume has been identified for that particular area. After the milling takes place, the area is newly paved with a new asphalt surface layer or overlay completing the mill and pave process.
