Two objectives were involved in this recycling project: To determine if the asphalt concrete surfacing from an existing roadway could be removed, the existing portland cement concrete pavement broken, removed, crushed to 1-1/2 inch minus, proportioned through a conventional central mix proportioning plant with the addition of concrete sand, and placed with a conventional slipform paver; and to determine if a two course, composite pavement, each course of different mix proportions, could be placed monolithically with conventional slipform equipment after being proportioned and mixed in a conventional central mix plant. The project was completed with no major problem. The objectives were satisfactorily met. The project was a success to the degree that the Iowa D.O.T. is proceeding with at least two projects for the 1977 construction season that will utilize the old pavement as appregate for the new pavement.
