As a result of spiraling highway construction costs, the highway community is deeply concerned with identifying cost saving measures in planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining streets and highways. One cost saving measure that has been identified, researched, and demonstrated is asphalt pavement recycling. Labor, materials, and energy savings have resulted on many projects. Continued development of recycling equipment, identification of new, innovative processes and widespread/use of available information are among the elements needed to refine the state-of-the-art practices. As petroleum products and quality aggregates become more scarce, recycling of pavements will emerge as a standard highway and street construction item. (Author)
