Evaluation of Fiber-Reinforced Asphalt Pavements - Phase 1: Laboratory Study

The overall goal of this project is to assess the effectiveness of using fibers in hot mix asphalt (HMA) to reduce cracking and improve rutting resistance. The project will include building three sections; two with fibers and one control section on a 3.22 mile long pavement project. The first phase of the project, covered by this research project, will focus on collection, analysis, and reporting of the laboratory and construction data. The second phase of the project will focus on monitoring, analyzing, and reporting on the filed performance of the test sections.
