“Using these pavement recycling methods has the potential to revolutionize how we rehabilitate our aging roads, both in Virginia and nationally,” Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement. “We expect to continue using these processes, where appropriate, to save money and materials as we rebuild older roads throughout the commonwealth.”
VDOT rehabilitated a 3.7-mile southbound section of I-81 near Staunton in 2011 using three processes known in the paving industry as “cold in-place recycling,” “cold central-plant recycling,” and “full-depth reclamation.”
Later this year, VDOT plans to use cold in-place recycling to rebuild a section of U.S. 17 in Isle of Wight County.
