I am working on a resurfacing project where we are not doing any slope correction. We are simply grinding off the top couple inches of asphalt and laying back new.
I'm getting a little confused on whether I need to create a milling component or an overlay component, or both. Basically I need a component that will follow the existing surface on the top, and follow the existing surface a couple inches down on the bottom.
Is that Milling? Is that an overlay? I've seen a few posts here about this sort of thing, but none of them have answers, so I'm mystified.I have both Geopak and InRoads, but the Openroads tech is the same in either.
If you are not doing any slope correction, you would only need to create a milling component with a specified depth (1.5" or 2" typically). Make sure you have the stripping component option checked so that it will be computed in the component quantity.
