Mill and pave starts on Monday in the Town of Wolfville.
The four primary streets we are repaving this year are Pleasant (Orchard to Sherwood), Huron (Pleasant to Perry Bowles), Chestnut (Queen to Beckwith), and King (Victoria to Orchard).
Along with repaving, other minor deficiencies are being corrected, such as catch basins and manhole lids.
Mill and pave begins by grinding up the existing asphalt into a tiny, gravel-like material (often referred to as “millings”). The millings are then hauled off-site and can easily be recycled. The newly-grinded surface is then layered with tack and set to receive a fresh, smooth coat of asphalt.
