Bituminous Mixtures Laboratory
Start Date: June 16, 2010
End Date: March 14, 2012
Goals:
Recycled pavement materials for pavement preservation and rehabilitation design.
Expected Benefits:The expected benefit is reduced construction costs by using recycled materials and by extending life with pavement preservation.
Deliverables:Name: Construction and Performance of 4.75 mm Nominal Maximum Aggregate Size (NMAS) Superpave Thin Overlay Containing Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP)
Product Type(s): Research report
Description: The deliverable is a research report quantifying the estimated extension in life from use of thin overlays for preservation.
