It’s different every year: the day the road restrictions are lifted and we can finally get to work undoing the damage that the winter has done. Extreme cold, ground-in dirt and salt, thawing snow, all have made their mark. The sooner we get to work, the better chance we have of repairing minor issues before they become major, and this can save you a bundle in the long run. Don’t wait to get started on your spring cleanup planning!
Once those restrictions are lifted our calendar gets jam-packed, so we encourage everyone to get in touch asap. Give us a call or drop a line.
Necessity, the mother of invention this Winter
This winter brought severe cold to many parts of the U.S., and DOTs have had to get plenty creative to keep up with the snowfall. According to Asphalt Magazine, new machines with ice-breaking attachments, innovative “tow plows” and potato juice have all played their part in getting us through this record-breaking season. Yes, potato juice was found by TDOT (Tennessee Department of Transportation) to be a great, biodegradable ice-melter!
