MATERIALS AND PROCEDURES FOR REPAIR OF POTHOLES IN ASPHALT-SURFACED PAVEMENTS -- MANUAL OF PRACTICE

The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) H-106 maintenance experiment and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Long-Term Monitoring (LTM) of Pavement Maintenance Materials Test Sites project studied the repair of potholes in asphalt-surfaced pavements. Many different repair materials and methods were investigated between 1991 and 1996 through test sites installed at eight locations in the United States and Canada. The findings of these combined studies have been merged with standard highway agency procedures to provide the most useful and up-to-date information on the practice of repairing potholes. This Manual of Practice is an updated version of the 1993 SHRP Pothole Repair Manual. It contains the latest information pertaining to the types and performance characteristics of repair materials and methods, as well as the proper ways of planning, designing, constructing, and monitoring the performance of pothole repair projects. It also details how the cost-effectiveness of pothole patch types can be determined and it provides an updated partial listing of material and equipment manufacturers. This Manual is intended for field and office personnel within highway maintenance agencies and contracted maintenance firms. It contains valuable information for supervisors and foremen in charge of individual patching operations, engineers in charge of planning and overseeing many patching projects, and managers in charge of establishing pothole repair policies and standards.
