Instead of mill & fill, use CIR as a cost-effective alternative to reduce materials costs, cut down on trucking and hauling, and repair pavements with faster construction times.
Cold In-place Recycling vs Mill & Fill
Removes 70% of cracks in most cross sections
Adds 15-20 years of service life. And if applied optimally, can reach 25 years.
Inhibits future reflective cracking from occurring

What is CIR?
When agencies or pavement owners need to rehabilitate damaged pavements using constrained budgets, they look to Cold in-Place Recycling (CIR) in place of conventional mill & fill methods. CIR recycles the top 2-5 inches of asphalt using a continuous train operation.
Generally, any road that is a candidate for mill & fill is a candidate for CIR. CIR is good for pavements with a PCI of 70 or less, and can be applied to nearly every road type.
The end result is a strong, recycled subgrade layer, which is covered with hot mix or other surface treatment.
90% less greenhouse gas: Because the CIR process is applied in-place with existing material, when compared to mill & fill, each CIR project dramatically cuts down on the need for trucking and hauling of materials, saving big for budgets and the environment.
