Summary:
The search for means of extending the useful life of roadway pavements is an ever-continuing task.   In an effort to
alleviate this problem the Maine DOT has constructed two experiments designed to prolong the life of the pavement in
two different geographical areas of the state.  As a part of both experiments, the existing cracks at construction joints
and random cracking locations have been membranes have been applied over the sealed cracks prior to surface sealing.
