Problem

Progressive Insurance, headquartered in Cleveland, OH, employs more than 5,000 people. Harsh freezing and thawing during Ohio winters had caused extensive alligator, traverse, and longitudinal cracking to the employee parking lot at its Omega West building. The company needed to restore the parking lot and wanted an option that would install quickly so that its employees were not short on parking spaces. Also, Progressive wanted an solution that supports its vision of using innovative strategies that maintain a small carbon footprint and offer sustainable outcomes.

Solution

Mirapave 500 was considered, but PETROMAT® EnviroTM was chosen because it can easily be milled and recycled. Enviro is a engineered paving fabric that offers unmatched moisture protection and stress absorption to slow fatigue and reflective cracking. Plus, Enviro can be installed directly over a milled surface without a leveling course.
