multi-step process, in which the existing asphalt pavement is heated and scarified with specialized equipment. Depth of the asphalt pavement to be scarified is usually between 25 mm and 50 mm. The only new material added to the pavement is an asphalt recycling agent which improves the properties of the aged asphalt.

The product is an asphalt mix technology already in use in California that may not just cut plastic waste in the U.S., a pressing need after China banned such imports in 2018, but also yield strong, flexible pavement while improving roads and helping cut carbon emissions in the process. The product has already proved viable, and there are several projects ahead, Sean Weaver,

Pavement management basics and benefits: A strategy of prevention. By Dave Johnson, P.E. Rising materials costs have the managers of our infrastructure seeking better and more cost-effective ways to manage assets. With these increasing costs, the value of our in-place materials rises and becomes more expensive to maintain at an acceptable level

NYC DOT - Sustainable Street Resurfacing - New York City

DOT is a national leader in the use of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP). By incorporating recycled content, the City saves on new material and the costs associated with transport and landfill fees. With RAP, yesterday’s pavement becomes today’s streets as old paving materials get removed from City streets during routine resurfacing operations.

Evaluation of Long-Term Pavement Performance and Noise

The most recent OBSI readings taken in December of 2009 indicated that the open-graded asphalt rubber and SBS modified sections were 3.5 to 2.0 decibels, respectively, quieter than the Class ½ inch HMA control section. This experimental evaluation will continue for the useful life of the pavement or a minimum of five years. 17. KEY WORDS 18.

Impact of viscosity modifier on asphalt properties used

Long-term pavement performance test results showed that high-viscosity modifier TPS has many merits in pavement performance, such as enhancing adhesion of asphalt and aggregate, improving mix resist stripping and high temperature of the asphalt flow resistance and contributing to the resistance to mix rutting.

Evaluation of Three Polymer Modified Asphalt Concretes

Polymer additives to asphalt materials are being advocated as hav­ ing high potential for improving lohg'-term pavement performance through their ability to enhance the properties of the asphalt binder and of the resulting asphalt concrete mix (2). Advantages of poly­ mer additives to asphalt include improved adhesion and cohesion, .
