SOME PRACTICES USED BY OHIO IN THE SALVAGING OF OLD PAVEMENTS

PAVEMENT WIDENING WITH NON-RIGID BASES OF THE MACADAM AND BITUMINOUS CONCRETE TYPES AND RESURFACING WITH BITUMINOUS CONCRETE ARE DISCUSSED. TO AVOID UNNECESSARY COSTS, PAVEMENT SALVAGING MUST BE DONE AT THE PROPER TIME. THE PAVEMENT MUST BE MADE READY FOR SALVAGE WORK BY UNDERSEALING, ADDING AN INSULATION COURSE TO THE SURFACE, OR OTHER METHODS. IT IS MORE ECONOMICAL TO ADD EXTRA LEVELING MATERIAL THAN TO REMOVE AND REPLACE THE OLD PAVEMENT. PLACING OF WIDENING COURSES WITHOUT THE USE OF FORMS HAS INCREASED PRODUCTION, DECREASED LABOR, AND IMPROVED THE STABILITY OF THE WIDENING. PLACING OF WIDENING WITH SELF PROPELLED STRIKE OFF UNITS HAS IMPROVED RESULTS AND INCREASED PRODUCTION. /AUTHOR/
