Called roadbed modification by the Nevada Department of Transportation, new bases are being prepared for new roads by grinding up old asphalt pavement, adding portland cement, and recompacting. The finished product is a strong, cement-treated base upon which a new surface, usually asphalt, is added. It is a cement-based recycling process that mimics the hardening and curing of concrete. Used also for county roads, streets, and paving at small airports by local jurisdictions in states ranging from Virginia and Florida to Arizona and California, the recylcing process involves the following sequences: scarification, pulverization, mixing in the cement and water, compaction, and sealing (curing).
