SURFACE TREATMENT STUDY
This report includes a study of past highway surface treatment in Georgia; recommended revision to specifications; describes current construction methods and techniques; identifies problem areas; and recommends ways to improve construction. The appendix includes a Surface Treatment Construction Manual and Training Program outline. The major problems are identified as streaking and bleeding and an investigation into the causes of these problems was made. Three types of bituminous materials were used on surface treatment projects in an attempt to evaluate asphalt pavement types. A test method for uniformity of asphalt application is proposed and preliminary results are presented.
