Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 34-08. Use of Ultra-Thin Whitetopping

Ultra-Thin Whitetopping (UTW) is a recently developed rehabilitation technique in which a 2 to 4 inch later of high-strength, fiber reinforced, Portland cement concrete is placed over a milled surface of rutted and/or cracked asphalt concrete pavement. The highway community would benefit from a synthesis of the use, criteria for selection, and performance of UTW. A survey of this literature, state DOTs, and highway research facilities will be performed to gather information for the synthesis.
