The purpose of this study was to document the current condition of the rubblized and reconstructed pavement on Terminal Boulevard (SR 406) in Norfolk, VA, and to generate baseline pavement performance information.
Non-Destructive Modulus Testing and Performance Evaluation for Asphalt Pavement Reflective Cracking Mitigation Treatments
Four treatments were evaluated to determine their effectiveness in mitigating reflective cracking via non-destructive FWD tests and Surface Wave Method tests to measure layer modulus, along with field pavement performance surveys.
Mechanistic Design Data from ODOT Instrumented Pavement Sites – Phase 1 Report
This investigation examined data obtained from three previously-instrumented pavement test sites in Oregon. Data processing algorithms and templates were developed for each test site that facilitated full processing of all the data to build databases representing each site. Investigation of site data found that most of the collected data could be successfully processed and observed trends in the data were as expected (e.g., seasonal changes affected pavement response). The location that compared rubblized base to aggregate base clearly demonstrated the effect of the rubblized base through a 50% reduction in strain at the bottom of the asphalt layer.
Mechanistic Design Data from ODOT Instrumented Pavement Sites – Phase II Report
This investigation examined data obtained from three previously-instrumented pavement test sites in Oregon. Data processing algorithms and templates were developed for each test site that facilitated full processing of all the data to build databases representing each site. Investigation of site data found that most of the collected data could be successfully processed and observed trends in the data were as expected (e.g., seasonal changes affected pavement response). The location that compared rubblized base to aggregate base clearly demonstrated the effect of the rubblized base through a 50% reduction in strain at the bottom of the asphalt layer. Further investigations of the data may be warranted and user's guides provided in this report will enable those investigations to proceed by ODOT staff.
Reconstructed Runway Rises from Rubble at Coles County Memorial
The project team at Coles County Memorial Airport in Illinois chose rubblization and asphalt overlay to reconstruct the runway to keep costs down and to minimize disruption to the day-to-day operations of the airport.
Improved design of overlay treatments to concrete pavements
The objective of this UK research was to develop improved design guidance for asphalt overlays to concrete pavements by providing techniques that will reduce the thickness of overlay while still minimizing the occurrence of reflective cracking. The crack & seat and rubblization are techniques are addressed.
Towards Sustainable Pavement Systems: A Reference Document
This reference document has been prepared to provide guidance to the pavement community on sustainability considerations in pavement systems, drawing from and synthesizing the large and diverse body of knowledge that exists on pavement sustainability. Crack & seat and rubblization are identified as sustainable construction techniques.
Validation of Staged Construction Pavement Design with the Falling Weight Deflectometer
This paper documents the Illinois Tollway staff's monitoring and observation process of the I-88 rubblization and asphalt overlay project during the first 9 years of service to validate the original design assumptions and verify the Stage 2 pavement design strategy and overall pavement performance.
Survival Analysis for Composite Pavement Performance in Iowa
This study investigates the performance of composite pavements composed of a flexible layer over a rigid base. Four composite pavement rehabilitation methods are involved in the research: mill and fill, structural overlay, rubblization and heater scarification.
Rubblization – A Way to Save Time, Money, and Resources
When concrete pavements reach a certain level of deterioration, rubblization of the concrete with an asphalt overlay is the easiest, cheapest, and most effective way to rehabilitate the pavement in the shortest amount of time.
Rubblization and Asphalt Overlay of a 2-Lane Highway under Traffic
The following pictures present a construction phasing and traffic control scenario for concrete pavement rubblization and asphalt overlay of a 2-lane highway constructed under traffic.
"Antigo Construction's knowledge, professionalism, and dedication to quality has helped Payne & Dolan become a finalist for the 2014 Sheldon G. Hayes award for the 2012-2013 IH 43 project in Waukesha County. Antigo Construction's contributions to this project, and many others, cannot be understated and is greatly appreciated."

Evaluation of Rubblized Pavement Sections in Michigan Constructed between 1988 and 2002
This report has been prepared to summarize the relevant findings regarding the performance of the pavement sections rubblized using the MHB between 1997 and 2002 in Michigan and the performance of pavement sections rubblized using the RFB between 1988 and 2000.
Development of Guidelines for Rubblization Final Report
This report presents the results of Airfield Asphalt Pavement Technology Program Project (AAPTP) 04-01, Development of Guidelines for Rubblization. The objective was to document the state of the art in rubblization technology for airfield pavements.
Performance Contracting for Construction on the M-115 in Clare County, MI
This report documents the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) HfL demonstration project, which involved performance contracting for construction (PCfC) on M-115, a two-lane rural highway in Clare County, MI.
"We found Antigo Construction employees to be well qualified, dedicated, and hardworking. Antigo Construction provided the appropriate type of machinery to perform the job in an efficient and effective manner. The equipment was reliable and well maintained which is backed up by the minimal downtime that occurred on the job."

Rubblizing may sound like just another funny word-but communities and county highway departments will like the sound of how rubblizing can provide significant time and cost savings.
Structural Characterization of Iowa’s Rubblized PCC Pavements
This paper describes a field study undertaken to investigate the performance of rubblized pavements in Iowa, which includes characterization of the rubblized Portland cement concrete (PCC) layer (layer coefficient and modulus) using a neural networks-based layer moduli backcalculation program. The average rubblized PCC layer coefficient and backcalculated modulus of the rubblized layer in Iowa were found to be 0.19 and 539 MPa (78 ksi), respectively.
