The cost of hot mix asphalt, which is closely tied to petroleum prices, has increased by 28 percent in the past six years, making traditional street maintenance of milling and paving a stringent task for municipal officials. “It's becoming more and more expensive every time, and it's just not really sustainable for us to only do that treatment,” City of Hagerstown Engineer Rodney Tissue said Tuesday, “And what we're looking at it is doing other techniques along with milling and paving.” As a way to combat increased costs, the city instituted its Pavement Preservation Program in 2006, with the goal of maintaining streets and parking lots at the highest level possible but at the lowest cost, according to Tissue.
