Are there advantages, other than cost, why I should use hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavement?

There really are many reasons to prefer an HMA pavement including: smoothness, quiet, stage construction, ease of maintenance, speed of construction, least user delay cost, ease of repair of utility cuts, no cure time, recyclability and now, that technology exists to design HMA mixtures to reliably perform under any conditions of load and environment, there is no longer any reason to consider anything else . for more information on these issues, visit Asphalt Roads.
