You're rolling it wrong

Paso Robles

By Richard Holmes

Regarding Caltrans’ test-rolled stretch of Highway 1 and proposed results of that experimental “solution” (“SLOCOG tells Caltrans to shift gears,” April 4):

There is no way possible for the results of a subject test-roll to provide any positive results, let alone a solution.

Any rolling of asphalt, containing large rocks, using a multi-wheeled rubber roller, will not change the roughness of the surface. What is needed, and will change the large rock surface, is an old-fashioned, water-filled steel roller. Only then can an experiment be of any value in determining whether rolling or additional resurfacing is required.
