CONSTRUCTION OF REHABILITATION TEST SECTIONS ON US 59 IN THE LUFKIN DISTRICT

The overall objective of the study is to develop a rehabilitation plan for US 59 in the Lufkin District. The rehabilitation plan covers a relatively long time period and includes numerous performance periods. The report describes the construction and cost of the test sections built as part of the project. Seven of the test sections were constructed on rigid jointed concrete pavement that had previously been overlaid with asphalt concrete pavement (ACP). The remaining seven test sections were constructed on a flexible pavement structure that had been overlaid several times since initial construction. Rehabilitation design strategies included removal of old ACP, the application of new base material, joint and crack repair, crack and seating, and the use of differently sized aggregates in the ACP materials.
