Experimental Features in Highway Construction -WMA

The use of WMA (Warm Mix Asphalt) increases the time window between production and final compaction on the road. This would permit increased haul distances and allow paving in to cooler weather than with normal temperature HMA (Hot Mix Asphalt). Research is needed to monitor and evaluate WMA binders and mixes in cold weather conditions to verify that the benefits can be realized without unknown detrimental effects.
