This report describes the equipment, material and procedures used to reconstruct the right lane and shoulder of a badly deteriorated one-mile section of I-15, south of Las Vegas, by recycling the original asphalt 4-inch pavement. Additional asphalt and rejuvenating materials were added to increase penetration of asphalt and to meet mix design. Crushed material was remelted in a contractor designed and patented rotating heat exchanger having a series of flues to carry hot gases through the tumbling mass; emissions were quite minimal. Suggested specifications and unit cost information are included.
