RAP shall not contain chert*
Surface Layers: 20 % with no
more than 15 % containing chert
*;
All Other Layers: 35 %
RAS Not Allowed
Surface Layers: 20 % *;
All Other Layers: 35 %
* This limitation applies even if the surface layer is to be covered by an Open Graded Friction
Course (Section 420). If the aggregate is chert gravel with a bulk specific gravity that is less than
2.550, a maximum of 15 % of the RAP will be allowed. RAP containing chert gravel shall be
crushed so that 100 % of the RAP passes the 1/2 inch {12.5 mm} sieve. Additional RAP that
does not contain chert gravel may be added to the mixture through a separate feeder.
** RAS shall be limited to 5 % by mass of the total aggregate content.

Section 410 (Continued)
• Subarticle 410.02(f)
• New Item 410.02(f)4
• Added RAS as a fiber
stabilizer
• Added Synthetic fibers

Slide on RAS and Synthetic Fiber
(f) LIQUID ASPHALT BINDER DRAINDOWN.
1. FIBER STABILIZER.
A fiber stabilizer is required for some mix
types (Section 420, 423, etc). A fiber stabilizer may be
used on other mix types where asphalt binder cement
draindown is a problem. Where RAS is included in the
JMF, fiber stabilizer shall not be required provided the
draindown requirements of 0.30% or less are met when
tested in accordance with AASHTO T305 at 325°F
{163°C} and 350°F {176°C}.

4. SYNTHETIC FIBERS.
Synthetic fibers shall include but are not limited
to one or a combination of the following: polyolefins
(such as polyethylene and polypropylene) and aramids
(such as Kevlar, Twaron and Nomex). Fibers shall be
twisted fibrillated, flat fibrillated or monofilament with
a maximum fiber length of 0.75 inches {19 mm}

• Item 410.03(c)3
• Added RAS as a fiber
stabilizer
• Added Synthetic fibers
• Added in Density
Requirement when the
leveling layer meets
minimum rate
requirements.
2014 AAPA Conference
March 11-12, 2014
Item 410.03(c)3. Leveling
Leveling shall be compacted to meet the density
requirements given in Article 410.04 if the minimum
required placement rate shown on the plans is equal to
or greater than the placement rate given in the
following table for the maximum size aggregate in the
mix. Compaction shall be to the satisfaction of the
Engineer if the placement rate shown on the plans is
less than the placement rate shown in the following
table.
2014 AAPA Conference
March 11-12, 2014
Item 410.03(c)3. Leveling
DENSITY REQUIREMENTS FOR LEVELING BASED ON AGGREGATE SIZE
AND PLACEMENT RATE*
Specified density is required if the minimum
Maximum Size Aggregate
required placement rate shown on the plans
in the Leveling Mix
is equal to or greater than:
3/8 inch
80 lb/yd2
1/2 inch
135 lb/yd2

Industry Impacts
• ATRIP = $1,000,000,000 Program
Approximately 1100 projects received some amount of funding
Approximately 750 of those are system preservation/ roadway
improvements
• Annual resurfacing program = $250,000,000
• Large portion of remaining budget is roadway related
