Abstract

This report provides details of IADOT's experience removing and crushing asphaltic concrete and portland cement concrete for recycling. The recycled material was used on interstate highways for the subbase and shoulders. The major problem IADOT encountered on this project was the removal of reinforcing steel from the broken concrete. The contractor used hydraulic powered shears to clip off all protruding steel during the removal and loading of the concrete on the grade. This project took place in 1977.
