Abstract

Transportation infrastructure poses significant challenges to sustainable development because its construction and maintenance require large amounts of material consumption, energy input, and capital investment. A refined systematic approach to the design, construction, and management of pavement systems is necessary to meet the objectives of sustainable development. The major components of sustainable development in pavement systems include economic and social considerations in addition to environmental preservation. Asphalt mixture design and construction practices are essential to the environmental component of sustainable development. These practices include, but are not limited to, asphaltic mixture reusing and recycling as well as innovative technologies considering energy efficiency and stormwater management. Performance and durability become a critical issue with the changes introduced to the mixtures. This paper briefly summarizes the evaluation of mixture design practices and the performance of asphalt mixtures prepared with various types of recycled materials and warm mix technologies.
