Is it Too Cold to Pave?
Over the years, I've inspected many asphalt surfaces that were paved when the weather wasn't ideal. Paving in colder temperatures introduces challenges to the Paving Contractor that are not present in warmer weather. The main challenge is getting the asphalt to the job and laying and compacting it before it cools down. It takes an organized crew with the proper equipment to deliver a quality job at the end of the season. In the Midwest, asphalt plants are usually open until early December.
