Town East Mall opened in 1971 as the premiere shopping center for residents in Mesquite and the surround East Dallas area. Continuous improvements over the past 50 years include a $20,000,000 renovation in 2004 and countless repaving projects for their concrete and asphalt parking lots. These lots provide ample parking for patrons visiting the 1.2 million square feet of shopping space.
This most recent job consisted of curbs, gutters, sidewalks, and a reclaimer milling 3 inches into existing asphalt to prepare for the repaving shown below. This nearly 26,000 square foot parking lot will have many sections of it repaved over the next several week. More specifically, these photos show the previously milled 3” surface with the asphalt paving in progress. Where the asphalt is being pressed against the 3” deep wall of concrete, a tack coat of CSS-1h asphalt emulsion, diluted with a 1 to 1 water ratio, is applied to promote adhesion between the two materials (If this job required a prime coat of CSS-1h, it would need to be diluted with a 25% emulsion to 75% water ratio). This cationic slow setting asphalt emulsion must be applied and paved over within 24 hours.
The Town East Mall site is familiar to All State Paving. Although we didn’t provide the original paving for the entire mall, we have regularly repaved and maintained the existing pavement over the past several years. Our commitment to quality and expertise in mall parking lot paving makes us the ideal candidate for these types of jobs. The scope of this year’s Town East Mall repaving will requires hundreds of tons of asphalt (300 tons for these areas shown) to cover the 13,000 square feet being repaved.
