PAVEMENT IS HALF GLASS AND CONCRETE WASTE

A MUNICIPAL PARKING LOT IN A SUBURB OF DETROIT HAS BEEN PAVED WITH A 1.5-INCH BITUMINOUS BINDER CONTAINING CRUSHED GLASS AND USED CONCRETE TOPPED BY A 1-INCH WEARING SURFACE WITHOUT THE CRUSHED CONCRETE. THE BINDER CONTAINS 25% EACH GLASS AND CONCRETE CRUSHED TO -3/8 INCH, 44% STONE AGGREGATE OF -3/4 INCH, 5.5% ASPHALT, AND 1% HYDRATED LIME TO ASSURE ADHESION BETWEEN THE ASPHALT AND THE GLASS. THE TOP COURSE HAS 50% GLASS, 43% SAND, 6% ASPHALT, AND 1% LIME. THE MATERIAL ROLLED WELL IN 40 F TEMPERATURES AND LAID A GOOD SURFACE. IT IS PREDICTED THAT THE PAVEMENT WILL BE STRONGER AND HAVE BETTER SKID RESISTANCE THAN ORDINARY BITUMINOUS CONCRETE.
