Pothole repair in asphalt concrete pavements is one of the most commonly performed highway maintenance operations. The Strategic Highway Research Program's (SHRP) H106 pothole repair experiment was part of the most extensive pavement maintenance experiment ever conducted. The information derived from the study will contribute greatly towards advancing the state of the practice of response-type: pothole-patching operations.

This report provides infonnation to pavement engineers and maintenance personnel on the results of the H-106 pothole repair experiment. It presents the performance and cost-effectiveness of various cold-mix materials and procedures for repairing asphalt concretesurfaced pavements.
