Cold Milling/Cold Planning
Remove 12 inches in a single pass or just 1". PRS has the most diverse fleet of
pavement planers in the country.
Whether you're doing full roadway reconstruction or surface planing for application
of an overlay, PRS has the right equipment and expert operators for the job. Recycle
the materials yourself or, we'll haul them to our own Recycled Aggregates facility.
Cold Planing typically removes 1" to 4" of surface asphalt or 1" — 2" of concrete
allowing for the application of a thin overlay or wearing surface, It preserves
ancillary structures (e.g. curb and gutter) but allows improvements to the grade
and surface of the pavement section.
When used for full roadway reconstruction, cold milling is also capable of removing
up to 12 inches of paving material and base in a single pass. Another application
is for slot cutting of only badly deteriorated sections of roadway - then full depth
paving to restore an otherwise good road.
A significant benefit of cold milling is that the milled material can usually be
recycled and used on other projects as compactable base or recycled asphalt pavement.
