City Acquires New Milling Machine

Public Works has purchased a new milling machine that will significantly reduce the time required to complete a milling job. The new Wirtgen W200i will complement the City's existing milling head attachment.


Asphalt milling is the process of removing a part of an existing pavement surface to help restore it to a uniform texture or repave it. The new milling machine has several advantages. It is more powerful and faster, loads the millings onto a dump truck for easier cleanup, and can mill depths of two to eight inches of asphalt in a single pass. It is completely automated, allowing the operator to set the depth and the machine will leave a level surface. Milling jobs that took several days can now be done within hours.


"The new milling machine is a significant investment that will allow us to improve the quality and efficiency of our road repair and maintenance operations," said Director of Public Works Michael Park. "With this new machine, we can now mill larger areas and place asphalt the same day, reducing lane closures and disruptions for motorists."
