Published in 1982

About the report:

This report describes a project in which the bituminous pavement on an approximately 8-mi. (13-km) section of roadway was removed, recycled through a conventional asphalt batch plant, and relaid. The project was accomplished with little difficulty and proved that recycling is an economical, feasible process. The asphaltic mix relaid consisted of about 40% recycle material and 60% virgin aggregate.
