Hot in Place Recycling
FHWA-Approved Pavement Preservation Technique

    Hot-in-Place recycling is faster—roads open sooner.

    Relax. It’s cost-effective.

    Saves money. Delivers up to 40% savings vs. conventional 2” mill and overlay. Saves time. It’s faster than conventional methods.

    Relax. It consumes less.

    Reduces user delays. Omits or reduces truck traffic and turns work zone into temporary restriction vs. closure. Reduces carbon footprint. Reduces carbon footprint by up to 28% vs. standard paving methods.

    Relax. It’s environmentally sound.

    Reuses existing pavement. You’ve already paid for it; get more bang for your asphalt buck! And Hot-in-Place burns less fuel compared to heating, hauling and working with new asphalt.

    Relax. It’s Gallagher.

    Hot-in-Place recycling was pioneered by Gallagher Asphalt Corporation—one of the oldest and largest asphalt producers in the state of Illinois. We’ve been building roads for over 80 years and recycling them for over 65.

    Our company is now in its third generation of family management and has paved or resurfaced literally thousands and thousands of miles of pavement under some of the country’s most challenging conditions.

    Resurface 13 miles with a budget that only covers 10.

    Going green has some big advantages—especially when budgets are being squeezed.
