Paving & Overlay
Transportation Trust Fund
With the Council's support, much improvement has been realized in the
past few years to the City's roadways due to the funds made available
by the Transportation Trust Fund sales tax. We have received much
positive feedback from the residents of the City who appreciate these
improvements. APAC was awarded the low bid for the 2008 Street
Improvements project. Streets scheduled to undergo construction are
The City would like to express its gratitude to the City Council for their support, the residents for their patience (considering the inconvenience these projects sometimes cause), and the Street and Water crews for the extra effort they give to assure the successful completion of these projects.
Reclamite Application on South Williams Street - 2007
The City of Moberly utilized a Reclamite application during the widening of Williams Street. Analytically, South Williams had a 37% decrease in viscosity from the original value and a 27% increase in penetration from the original value. What this means is the Reclamite has reversed the pavements aging process. The product has slowed the aging effect and thus extended the pavements normal life cycle. A larger penetration and lower viscosity suggests that the pavement has an improved flexibility and deterioration in the asphalt pavement will be reduced. In simple terms, life has been added to the pavement. If the viscosity came out higher than the original value and the penetration came out lower than the original value, the pavement would harden faster with more cracks appearing sooner. Basically, the street would be deteriorating quicker. In a simple sense, Reclamite has injected essential ingredients back into the asphalt in order to reverse the aging process and not affect the structure of the pavement. Viscosity and penetration are two key components that influence how fast a pavement deteriorates. This is without factoring in base failure.
