Demonstration Project 39 – Asphalt Recycling

The pressing need to conserve energy and minimize costs in highway construction requires that special effort be made to identify and make the maximum use of procedures that will result in reduced energy usage and minimum cost. These are the experimental projects initiated by various states between 1978 and 1983 to recycle pavement materials.
