VT 14

Williamstown, VT - 2013


The state of Vermont did their first trial with FORTA-FI® in 2013. VT 14 was selected as it had a tremendous amount of rutting and reflective cracking. Limited funds made it not possible to do full depth reclamation therefore VTrans is looking to extend the life of the overlay. The road was leveled with a 5/8” shim, then a 1” overlay of Type IV – 50 Blow Marshall Bituminous Concrete Pavement was placed using 1,000 pounds of FORTA-FI® at one pound of fiber per ton of asphalt followed by equivalent paving using non-fiber reinforced asphalt as a comparison. VTrans will be studying the performance of this road over the next several years.
