Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 40-01. Recycled Materials and Byproducts in Highway Applications

Recycled materials and industrial byproducts are being used in transportation applications with increasing frequency. While there is a growing body of experience showing that these materials work well as highway construction materials, the related information and experience are not synthesized in a coherent body. This study will gather the experiences of transportation agencies, both foreign and domestic, in determining the relevant properties of recycled materials and industrial byproducts and how they can best be used for highway construction applications. The synthesis should serve as a guide to states revising the provisions of their materials specifications to incorporate the use of recycled materials and industrial byproducts, and should, thereby, assist producers and users in 'leveling the playing field' for a wide range of dissimilar materials.
