Hoffman Estates, IL - 2010


FORTA-FI® were selected for a section of a test evaluation project conducted by the Illinois Center for Transportation in suburban Chicago, IL. The ICT works with the Illinois DOT to research innovative paving materials and placement techniques that improve roadways and maximize taxpayer dollars spent on transportation infrastructure in the Land of Lincoln. The FORTA-FI® test pavement included steel slag, and a PG 70-22 polymer. This trial project will be studied and evaluated on a regular basis to measure the performance of each of the four new mix designs against traditional control sections.
