Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
I can understand the reasoning but I do wonder about how well this "improved" asphalt will perform.
What really irks me is when a new surface is laid down and 3 weeks later some contractor is digging up a small "square" because he's got to get at a valve or water line at the road edge. They then patch that square using substandard asphalt. Next thing you know that's where the asphalt is failing.........
But an extra million for a possible 10 year life span seems reasonable to me.
