Cold Mix Asphalt Used for Emergency Pothole Repair
Emergency repair crew in Orlando uses cold mix asphalt to repair massive pothole damaging I-4 traffic in less than one hour!
On July 27, 2010, a giant pothole opened up on Interstate 4, in the heart of Orlando, during the morning rush hour. This pothole, reportedly more than 18 inches in length, caused damage to nearly a dozen vehicles and backed traffic up for several miles. Fortunately, the Florida Department of Transportation in Orlando keeps EZ STREET® cold mix asphalt on hand for just such an emergency.
Within a short time of the pothole opening up, crews were able to close the westbound lane in question, repair the damaged section of roadway, and re-open the lane to traffic. This quick turn-around would not have been possible without the quick-thinking FDOT officials and the immediate availability of EZ STREET® cold mix asphalt.
