The snow has melted, the days are longer, and Memorial Day is around the corner. We are also well into our 2016 work season. While it would be our preference to work every day, sometimes Mother Nature does not cooperate. Weather in this area can vary between light sprinkles to heavy down pours. This raises the question of when can work in the rain?
Occasional light sprinkles should not be cause for us to shut down operations. However, a steady downpour will likely require us to reschedule.
The Asphalt Institute sums it up best, asphalt pavements are designed to last for many years, so don’t let a sense of urgency to get the job done quickly allow you to make decisions which could strip years away from the pavement life.
