Right of way (ROW) roadwork involves contractors having access to highways, trails, driveways, and other areas where they need to work on utilities or other infrastructure. For example, your city might have access to the alley behind your house because it houses utility poles for the whole street.
What does this have to do with cutting concrete? When contractors need access to areas, need to reshape areas, or are renovating areas, they usually perform right of way work like cutting concrete and asphalt. The asphalt and concrete contractors tackle can be anywhere from a quarter inch to a few inches thick but sometimes it must come out. The only way that’s going to happen is by cutting.
Contractors often need to cut asphalt or concrete for custom paving installations. Custom installations include driveways, access roads, commercial parking lots, and sidewalks to start. To achieve a clean, custom look, contractors utilize cutting methods to square their work.
Let’s figure out how concrete professionals are able to slice through pavement for different types of projects.
Cutting concrete or asphalt with a circular saw gives pavers and contractors the cleanest cut but you can’t put any saw blade on concrete, you need diamonds. Stone-cutting sawblades meant for asphalt and concrete are dusted with fine specs of diamond aggregate to give them superior strength and hardness. The diamond-dusted blades will tear through asphalt, concrete, and other types of paving.
