Summary:
Research was conducted to determine the feasibility of using recycled rubber tires in the production of asphalt in
Alaska.  Employees of the DOT in Arizona, California, and Florida were contacted to determine the best practices of
those states in the production of asphalt using crumb rubber, a product ground recycled rubber tires.  The report
describes the various types of asphalt using crumb rubber and the advantages found in the use of this product.  This
study’s findings indicate that crumb rubber modified asphalt is viable product for Alaska roads, Anchorage area roads in
particular.
