New materials and construction techniques are constantly being evaluated to extend pavement life and to improve overall performance of highway and airfield pavements. To be beneficial, these new materials must improve strength and durability or reduce the time and cost of construction. The papers presented in this publication are the results of recent studies to develop new materials and construction techniques. Materials for additives, binders, and mixtures include polyefin, latex, and silicones. One paper reviews the influence of lime content on fones in asphalt concrete mixtures. Techniques include roller-compacted concrete, rapid setting pavement patching, and innovative fast track resurfacing methods that use materials and equipment that allow re-opening roads to traffic within hours of application.
