Asphalt patch overlays completed on Pound Road last April are constantly falling to pieces (there are quite a few). There are a few areas that have a patch within a patch and are constantly falling apart. One in particular is ready to blow out as the integrity of the surface has gone completely. There is a mosaic of asphalt simply sitting in place. Next heavy rainfall, this area will fail and blowout. As this is a recurring issue, you may want to ask your contractor to look into the subgrade layer, as it's looking likely that it is causing the issue. Asphalt overlay isn't enough to stand up to large pavement deflection on a road with so much heavy traffic. Simply filling it in with more mix isn't working.
