Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 41-12. Microsurfacing Best Practices

Microsurfacing treatments are widely used for preventative maintenance of pavements. While there has been extensive research on hot mix asphalt design and chip seal surface treatments, microsurfacing design and construction continues to depend more on local field experience and judgment, instead of a generally accepted engineering methodology. When not properly applied, these treatments fail early and incur costly corrective maintenance for user agencies. Microsurfacing NCHRP Synthesis 342: Chip Seal Best Practices successfully brought together in one document the national experience in that pavement maintenance/preservation treatment. A similar synthesis needs to be done for microsurfacing.
