Nuclear Densometre Testing
A nuclear densometre test is then performed on the base layer of asphalt to ensure that there has been enough compaction before the final layer of asphalt can be applied.
The first layer of asphalt is being compacted on North Road in August 2012 as part of the Evergreen Line Rapid Transit Project.
Work to widen North Road to add a permanent lane on the west side continues near Lougheed Town Centre Mall. The new lane will help minimize traffic disruption during guideway construction. After construction is complete, the new lane will replace the lane taken up by the guideway.
