PCC RUBBLIZING PROJECT, OVERLAY GRABS TOP HONOR

With rubblizing of portland cement concrete pavement with asphalt concrete overlay, it is possible to achieve total reconstruction of roadways without total excavation. In 'rubblizing,' a sonic or resonant vibrator shatters aged PCC into fragments which are compacted, then topped with hot mix asphalt base and friction courses. This gives a totally rebuilt highway at a considerable cost savings. A West Virginia rubblizing project is noted, which won the industry's highest award, the National Asphalt Pavement Assocation's Sheldon G. Hayes Award.
