July 2013
C&D World;Jul/Aug2013, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p12
The article reports on the results of a survey that was held by the California Department of Transportation (DOT) in 2013 concerning the use of recycled concrete by state departments of transportation . It states that agencies were asked which applications enable crushed concrete to be used as aggregate. It offers information on a document titled Sustainable Concrete Pavements: A Manual of Practice, by Gary Fick, Peter Taylor, and Tom Van Dam.
