Mayor Announces New Technology for Winter Road Restoration

Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. announced today that the City of Anderson Street Department is implementing new technology for winter road restoration. Broderick explained that the new technology uses hot asphalt and new training techniques to fill potholes located on city streets that will help to ensure the safety of drivers in our community.

 Mayor Broderick stated that the Board of Public Works, City Engineer Chuck Leser, and the Street Department have been working on the program that will implement the use of hot asphalt instead of a cold patch, which will provide a more permanent solution. He explained that this will allow the asphalt to compact and last longer, which will reduce the cost of labor, equipment, and asphalt in the future.

 Training has also been implemented to ensure the new applications will provide more longevity and durability than the previously used old patch applications. Local business, Cox Recycling is providing the hot asphalt and created this technology, which uses recycled asphalt and rejuvenating oil.

Mayor Broderick stated, “This new technology being added to the yearly project of pothole repair will be critical to the safety of our visitors and citizens in Anderson. We are hopeful that this new technology will provide longer-term relief from the inevitability of yearly potholes that are the result of the sometimes harsh and ever-changing temperatures experienced in northern Indiana. During this winter season, we want to remind everyone to drive safely and keep an eye open for potholes that can sometimes develop in a short period of time. We ask that drivers also use care in driving in areas our city workers are engaged in road patching. I would also ask our citizens to help by reporting potholes to our street department. Reports may be made by calling 765-648-6445 or on the Report a Concern tab on the homepage of the website at www.cityofanderson.com.”

The City of Anderson Street Department provides road restoration for city-owned streets. For restoration concerns regarding state roads in our community, please contact the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) at (855) 463-6848.
