Summary:
The bulk of this report is a state of the art review of asphalt hot mix in which the binder is asphalt rubber or in which
rubber has been added as an aggregate.  In each section of the report, the existing literature is reviewed and
recommendations are then made on how the FDOT could modify test methods or specifications to allow the
incorporation of scrap tire rubber while not compromising the quality of their existing surface.  Where the technical
literature did not provide direct information, the staff provided their opinion and recommendations.
