Construction, Testing and Performance Report on the Resin Modified Pavement Demonstration Project

Resin Modified Pavement (RMP) is a composite paving material consisting of a thin layer (2 inches) of open graded hot mix asphalt (HMA) whose internal air voids (approximately 30% voids) are filled with a latex rubber-modified portland cement grout. The objective of this project was to construct test sections composed of three different types of pavement; RMP, 3 inch thick ultra-thin whitetopping and Superpave performance graded 82-22 polymer modified HMA pavement. This project was constructed at two signalized intersections on US 72 in Corinth, Mississippi in April of 2001 and will be monitored for a period of five years. Using the information gained from these test sections, the Mississippi Department of Transportation will be able to develop a “paving strategy” for heavily trafficked intersections within our highway network based on both economics and performance.
