they sent me over to cold patch a ''few'' pot holes in a driveway the other day ;) looks like we are doing some blacktopin when the plant opens back up and yes the blacktops about an 1'' thick or less in spots. To make it better the company that did it's no longer in business, go figure.

The base is fine its not what failed blacktop cannot support itself when its only an inch thick i don't care how thick of a base you have its going to fail at that thin. this was a hack job that when it was sighed off on they never core drilled it like they were suppose to or they would of had to do it right. We are going to take the skid loader and rip the old blacktop up ( they have a farm road they want to dump it on) and do 2 pulls the first @ 4'' using base mix and the 2nd at 3'' using top mix which is code for all our jobs giving us about 5'' of blacktop
