The City of Sunset Hills Public Works Department will be applying a Nova Chip to Richview, Otto Westway, Julius Northway, Maebern Terrace, Lincoln & Roosevelt in 2018.
Nova Chip is a product the City has used successfully on numerous asphalt pavements, including the Sunset Manor neighborhood, Rott Rd., (including the entrance to the rear of Sunset Plaza), Mentz Hill Rd. and other streets throughout the City.
Richview - Otto Westway - Julius Northway - Maebern Terrace
Roosevelt & Lincoln
A Nova Chip is a type of asphalt, typically more porous, but has a different application of the bonding agent that is immediately before the placement of the material. You can drive on it almost immediately after rolling it out. You'll note this material used by MoDOT on I-44 and I-270, north of I-44.
Here are some pictures of the process as applied in 2010 to Lombardy Lane in Sunset Hills:
Paving machine spreads the material evenly.
Rolling the material falls right in behind placement by the paver
Hand work right along side the rolling operation
Finished product is almost immediately ready for traffic
