Eighteen test sections with a thin overlay either of 31.8 mm (1.25 in.) of asphalt concrete or of 12.7 mm (0.5 in.) of asphalt concrete finishing course were built in 1971 and 1972 to determine to what extent they prevented reflective cracking. Of these 18,5 treatmetns were found to significantly reduce reflective cracking--heater scarification plus Petroset, asphalt rubber membrane interlayer, fiberglass, heater scarification plus Reclamitte, and 200/300 penetration asphalt. Other performance aspects, such as roughness, rutting, deflection, and asphalt properties are reported, and costs in terms of construction and actual maintenance are given. Each treatment's failure or success is reviewed and considered before determining the conclusions and recommendations. /Author/
