SPRINKLE TREATMENT PLACEMENT-IH20, ROSCOE, TEXAS

On June 1, 1978, an experimental road surface was designed and constructed in the State Department of Highways and Public Transportation District 8 near Abilene, Texas, to provide roadway skid resistance while conserving scarce skid resistant aggregates. The process, called "sprinkle treatment", has been used successfully in European countries for many years. The procedure calls for precoated aggregate to be placed on the surface of a hot-mix asphaltic concrete pavement prior to rolling. Hot and cold (ambient temperature) aggregate placements were attempted, skid testing and visual ratings were performed. (FHWA)
