    Enlighten me please. Other than a patchwork aesthetic is there a problem with mixing the two?

  • @Lisa – no, other than aesthetics, it’s not really a problem. Both required the least amount of effort (cost) from the contractor. Compacting asphalt to the point that it’s strong enough to support motorized traffic is hard, so patching the roadway is easier with concrete. Compacting asphalt to the point that it’s strong enough to support people walking is easy, which is why patching a sidewalk is easier with asphalt.

    Ahhh! The makes sense. I love your blog for this reason. The random bits of information, the view of the world from a new perspective, and of course KP’s adorable pics. Thanks.
