Environmental Impacts on the Performance of Pavement Foundation Layers-Phase 1

The proposed study will help optimize the use of recycled materials and LSSB in pavement systems and lead to more consistent specifications between agencies. Other benefits of this research include: (1) virgin material cost savings from the use of recycled materials; (2) longer pavement service life, resulting in reduced life cycle costs; and (3) conservation of natural resources resulting in reduced environmental impacts. The outcome of this research in the form of a pavement design specification could be immediately implemented by the department of transportations (DOTs) of states participating in National Road Research Alliance (NRRA).
