Project description

The objective of this project is to develop opportunities to improve the recycling and reuse of waste materials for road and bridge construction projects. This study is not about conducting laboratory materials testing. This study focuses on learning what factors influence the participation of recyclers and materials producers in increasing the use of recycled materials for road and bridge construction.
