Description
This report reviews Manitoba's and Minnesota's Specific Pavement Studies (SPS-5) projects. The studies focus on investigating the performance of hot mix asphalt (HMA) overlays on HMA pavements and involve nine core test sections. The SPS-5 design variables in test sections include a control section (do nothing), amount of preparation of the existing surface (mill, no-mill), overlay thickness (50-mm, 125-mm), and the type of overlay material (virgin, recycle). Researchers plan to study the Manitoba and Minnesota SPS-5 projects, part of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Project, until 2010, when each project reaches the approximate age of 20 years. This project update includes a field review by the authors, a review of the existing monitoring data, and an estimate of the expected performance and cost expectations for upcoming years until 2010. Currently after 10 years all sections, excluding the control section, still are performing well. As a result at this point, researchers recommended the least costly treatment, 50-mm recycled asphalt overlay with no surface preparation, for pavement rehabilitation.
