RAP TRIMS ROAD COST BY 10 PERCENT

The Iowa Department of Transportation estimates it saved at least $750,000 on a $7.1 million contract by recycling overlay asphalt on a paving job on Interstate 80 north of Atlantic. About 60,000 tons of recycled asphalt pavement (RAP) was included in the 190,000 tons of asphalt required for the 11-mile-long, 17-in.-thick inlay which was paved between existing 10-in. concrete shoulders. About 4,000 tons of asphalt was placed each day by the contractor, Atlantc-based Henningsen Construction Company. Further details of the construction operations and the equipment used are provided in this article.
