Boise Paving

Roads come in a lot of different forms. There are the loyal, reliable roads we drive on every day, communicating with us in lines of white and yellow. There are the paths that we take in our lives--and whether you take the one well-worn or the one less traveled by, these paths still make all the difference. Quieter than both of these, humbler and less noticed, are the modest little brothers: the walkways. We don't think about walkways very much. The fact that we can so easily take them as...

Do you view your driveway as part of the road? Many people don't--and, when you think about it, that makes sense. Driveways are more a part of the home than of the road. Our driveways certainly don't have stoplights or traffic signs or yellow and white lines to tell us where to drive, and we can usually cross them without a crosswalk, and we don't have to share them with hundreds of other drivers at one time. Driveways are more personal in simple, everyday sort of ways. However, driveways...

From the moment we first get our license, it's all about the car. We focus on make and model and passengers and insurance, and, most importantly, how to stay safe with all of the other cars surrounding us.

The road, too, deserves a fair portion of our attention—after all, it is this silent, snaking path of asphalt,...

Roads unite the world, connecting people to their homes, their favorite stores, their travel destinations, and, most importantly, to each other. Although most of us will use a variety of roads every day, we rarely stop to give much thought to those stretches of painted asphalt that can lead us almost anywhere we want to go. Today, we'll take a close look at the construction of asphalt pavements--not only for a better appreciation of...

Boise chip sealing

When we slip behind the steering wheel, our attention must automatically be everywhere at once: our car, our passengers, the other drivers, the weather conditions--the list is almost endless. However, one of the most important parts of driving is our relationship with the road itself. As drivers, we must pay a lot of attention to the road. Although it is, in its simplest form, a stretch of asphalt that has been lovingly adorned with painted lines and arrows, the road is one of the things we...
