What are the processes for patching on Tar and Chip roadways?

Hot mix asphalt (HMA) patching is the technique used to repair tar and chip roadways. In previous years, the patching on these roadways was performed by in-house Highway Operations staff. This patching is now performed by PMP contractors.   A HMA patch is utilized to repair the damaged roadway area which tar and chip resurfacing cannot effectively repair, increase the pavement section thickness to provide additional structure and can be slightly sloped to ensure proper drainage.
