Illinois Tollway: ReLIXER® in Base Course, Wear Layer & Shoulder Mixes
ReLIXER is the only rejuvenator / asphalt recycling agent approved for by Illinois Tollway, a 475 Km network of 6 highways within Illinois. The network consists of 6 to 12 lane highways, subject to high traffic and extreme weather conditions.
Close to 5000 tons of a 40 % ABR mix was produced to lay down 8 lane-Km of top and base courses. ReLIXER additions at 2.0 % and 3.6 % of total bitumen were used. The contractor was able to reduce the amount of virgin bitumen needed for the job. At the same time, the high-RAP mix with ReLIXER met all specifications and targets established by the Illinois Tollway Authorities. Property comparisons of ReLIXER® rejuvenated mixes were superior to mixes made with a “Softer” grade bitumen.
