Winters can be harsh on Michigan roads, and between the ice, snow, and salt, they tend to take on a lot of expensive damage. For repairing your roads in a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and convenient way, Great Lakes Chloride recommends doing a Michigan Full-Depth Reclamation.
Great Lakes Chloride does chloride work all across Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio to make roads safer and more driver-friendly. Our services include everything from full-depth reclamation to dust control. If you are interested in our business, contact us at 574-267-2286 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For some people, this process can be overwhelming and complicated, but Great Lakes Chloride has a few tips to help make the process go smoothly. Great Lakes Chloride is happy to help our customers get the most satisfaction out of the full-depth reclamation process or the other services we provide that are listed on our homepage. Here are four easy steps to help you get the ball rolling on your full-depth reclamation:
Look at the existing roadway or materials and determine the condition of the road and the load size it can carry. If your road can’t support a semi-truck or heavier vehicles then it is time to reclaim that road!
2. Choose the Correct Agents
When your road undergoes a full-depth reclamation, it is important to understand the correct agents and materials needed for this process. If you are looking for an agent that stabilizes and helps your road last longer, Great Lakes Chloride suggests you use liquid calcium chloride.
3. Reclamation Process
There are many steps in this part of the process. Talk to a specialist about understanding your road and what to do.
4. Save Money!
Thanks to the Michigan Full-Depth Reclamation, the lifespan of your road is significantly increased, and the thaw/ freeze cycle is less than the old road’s. The integrity of the reclaimed road ensures that it will be a safe and smooth ride for many years to come.
A full-depth reclamation is where the existing surface and underlying base of a road are completely smashed and mixed to create a newer and stronger road. Great Lakes Chloride recommends this method of replacing old and broken-down roads because:
Energy is preserved due to the cold process that requires zero heating fuel for full-depth reclamation. It also requires minimal hauling and handling of materials. Renewable resources, such as coal and oil, are also conserved during this process because all materials that are used are being reused, making this process environmentally friendly.
Lowers Traffic Disruptions
When you choose Great Lakes Chloride for your Michigan Full-Depth Reclamation, your project will reduce the number of traffic disruptions your road could develop. Thanks to the in-place construction and high production, drivers will be able to drive on your road with minimal interruptions. This process also doesn’t require as many workers or equipment as a typical road repair.
The Cost-Effective Choice
Because you need fewer workers and less equipment, you won’t need to spend as much upfront. In the long run, this process eventually pays for itself. The structural integrity of the gravel used will increase over time, making the road last longer and providing drivers with a smoother ride. Full-depth reclamations can provide our customers with savings as high as 50% in some cases. You can save up to 70% on road repairs for the same repairs for that same single road by choosing a full-depth reclamation that uses calcium chloride for a superior foundation.
Roads that undergo a full-depth reclamation provide drivers with a better driving experience. Whether your road is a private road or a public one, Greek Lakes Chloride will be there to help you reclaim your damaged road!

It costs $12 million to build one mile of a one-lane highway in Indiana. This amount excludes maintenance or road work costs.
In 2015, 295 projects were either completed or started to replace or resurface roads. These projects cost time, money and labor and don't hold up as long as any recycling initiative.

For every $1 spent in road recycling efforts, $14 are wasted in the future for repairs without a full-depth reclamation.
Over the course of two decades, a single municipality can spend up to 100 thousand taxpayers’ dollars on a single damaged road for repairs. If you would like to see this process be used on all major roads and highways, contact your local municipality or state department of transportation.
