Catterall & Wright consulted for the City of Saskatoon to design the rehabilitation of Parking Lot B at the Sasktel Centre Arena.
The grading design included introducing two new ridge lines which significantly improved the site drainage. The asphalt pavement design incorporated the TruPave paving mat, a nonwoven pavement interlayer composed of high strength fiberglass and polyester fibers. A sixty millimeter asphalt overlay was placed over the paving mat.
The purpose of the paving mat was to mitigate crack propagation through the asphalt overlay and create a moisture barrier between the existing pavement and the overlay, thus significantly extending the life of the new asphalt pavement.
This project resulted in an innovative and economic solution to improve drainage and resurface the existing Parking Lot.
