STUDY OF NIGHTTIME PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES--ASPHALTIC CONCRETE

The magnitude of scheduled airline operations at civil airports has made it imperative that runway repair and overlay with hot mix asphaltic concrete be accomplished at night so as not to interfere with normal airline flight schedules. Technical data and recommended construction practices such as working hours, construction lighting, automatic grade control, standby equipment, compaction, construction of transition and other related items are discussed in this study. Experiences of nighttime overlay construction at seven (7) municipal airports are documented in an appendix.
