Summary:
This was the first time a ground rubber tire pavement was recycled in the U.S.  On August 3, 1992, 20% of a Plus Ride
mixture #12 was recycled into New Jersey’s standard I-5 surface course mixture.  No modifications where required to
the drum plant and all production procedures were normal for producing recycled mixtures.  Composition analysis and
material performance at the project were excellent.  Air quality monitoring tests were performed with successful results.
