Definitions: (For those like me who never went to paving school)
Lower and plate structures – this is work done so the expensive drains don’t get ground up. Reclaim – this is when they pulverize the existing asphalt, ultimately reusing it as a base to save money for the City. Binder – This is the bottom of 2 coats of pavement, whereas the top coat is the finish coat. Berm – the curb on the side of the road.
