Joint grids
new road ,new crack

This picture was taken in the spring after one winter. This project had two interlayers, a chip seal and joint fabric. The joint fabric held the paving joint together, while the chip seal was not enough in the driving lane. Crack seal maintenance needs to be started already to slow the deterioration. The bottom picture used the same joint fabric, and chip seal, but added a paving fabric. The paving fabric will reduce or stop the cracks reflecting into the new overlay.
