Winter Asphalt Paving: Is it too Cold to pave in the Baltimore Area?


It is winter. That means it is impossible to pave, right? Wrong! We have found that many of our clients have the same common misconception that asphalt paving cannot happen in cold weather. While cold weather paving is more difficult and has many more challenges, it is possible.

Cold Weather Paving Challenges

  1. Transportation: The main challenge is transportation: getting asphalt to the job site and compacting it before it cools. This requires a well-organized and highly-skilled asphalt contractor.
  2. Manpower: Cold weather paving requires a lot of man power to get the job done right before the asphalt cools. This is why you should use qualified asphalt companies.
  3. Asphalt Plants: Most asphalt plants stop production in mid-December. Reliable contracting company keeps there plant running most of the winter.
