The article describes how Lee County, Iowa completed road recycling using a single machine in one pass, saving costs and inconvenience to the public. The maintenance had to effectively remedy the oxidation, cracking and half-inch rutting prevalent in the surface of two pavements. The new riding surface had to remain in close proximity to the elevation of the existing shoulders in order to eliminate an unsafe drop-off necessitating additional and costly shoulder renovation. The in-lane recycling process was chosen to serve both funding and pavement needs. After scarifying and loosening of the pavement, an emulsion rejuvenating agent was applied at a rate determined by laboratory testing. The relative lack of disruption and inconvenience was realized because the recycling was completed by a single machine in one pass.
