Two-year Evaluation of Recycled Hot Mix Asphalt Concrete on Route 220: Interim Report

Report No: 84-R43

Published in 1984

About the report:

An installation report describing the 7. 85-mi. section of U. S. Route 220 in Franklin County that was recycled and relaid in the fall of 1981 was issued in February 1982. A first interim report was written on February 9, 1983. This second interim report compares the data on various properties of the pavement obtained during or right after construction and the data obtained one year later and two years later.

The properties of the asphalt, voids total mix, and condition of the pavement were examined approximately 24 months after the recycled surface mix was put in service, and the data developed are compared here with the initial values and ones obtained after 12 months' service. The project is performing satisfactorily.
