SHRP VENTURES INTO CHIP, SLURRY TESTING

In the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) project H-101, the effectiveness of chip seals and slurry seals (as well as crack sealing and thin overlay) is being assessed at 81 asphalt pavement test sites located on in-service highways in 29 states. The program has divided the United States and part of Canada into 4 regions in which one contractor will do all the sites. In addition to chip sealing in 3 of the 4 regions, contractor members of the International Slurry Surfacing Association are performing slurry seal work. The regions are classified as dry-freeze, dry-no freeze, wet-freeze and wet-no freeze to study various extremes of climate. The research will help answer questions relating to when pavements should be sealed, and cost effectiveness.
