This research will evaluate the effectiveness of different strategies like reclaimed asphalt pavements (RAP), hydrated fly ash (HFA) and other possible alternatives as possible shoulder materials as solutions to reduce and hopefully eliminate the edge drop-off safety issues within the state. This research will evaluate the application and performance of different alternatives; and develop a logical method(s) to address problematic shoulder locations.
