Welcome to our new FDR Series, which will cover each phase of a full-depth reclamation project during construction. Full-depth reclamation is a road construction technique that recycles and reuses the existing pavement to create a stronger base for the new road. We're going to use Knollwood Drive in Baxter, MN, to illustrate this process. The first phase covers the reclamation of the existing roadway and removal of curb and gutter. Stay tuned for the next episode in our FDR Series where we'll discuss underground discovery.
