Project description

In the last 10 years, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has conducted various pavement recycling projects to evaluate the emerging maintenance repair & reconstruction (MR&R) techniques of Cold Recycling (CR) and Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR). These recycling projects have clear environmental and construction cost benefits. However, it remains necessary to evaluate the long-term performances of CR- and FDR-rehabilitated pavement sections so that recycling options can be assessed over the whole life cycle of the pavement.
