Starting Monday, June 29th 2020, Comer Contracting, Inc. will begin the process of applying a Stress Absorbing Membrane (SAM) on the surface of 6 roads in town (Woodruff Ave, Avice St, Lakewood Dr, Kingstown Rd, Boon St & South Pier Rd).

Asphalt rubber SAMs (Stress Absorbing Membranes) serve as highly durable wearing surfaces for demanding pavements. The innovative surface treatment includes 3/8” or 1/2" stone placed over a thick (0.5 to 0.7 gallons per yd2) hot-applied binder composed of asphalt blended with 20% by weight rubber from recycled tires. To be a good candidate for SAMs, pavement needs to be structurally sound with no significant defects.

This process is a cost effective method of slowing down the rate of deterioration & extending the useful life of the pavement.

For over 50 years, Comer Contracting has been providing quality and long lasting residential and commercial paving services. To learn more about the company & their history, click here. 

We apologize for any inconvenience & appreciate your patience, but this process must be applied to preserve the life of these roads.
