Just an update, the contractor performed another test strip on the Ola Highway, yesterday July 18, 2014. The test strip went very well, with a different asphalt mix design. This new asphalt is called a Warm Mix Asphalt. If the test strip passes this time, Idaho Sand & Gravel will start paving main line as soon as Tuesday of next Week.
Please keep in mind that you could be looking at 15 to 20 minute delays, when traveling the Ola Highway during the paving operation.
