Cold-in-place recycling has been used for years now on transportation projects across the country. The process entails using a train of equipment to convert previously-used materials into the foundation layer, all without removing, transporting, heating, or storing tons of asphalt. This technique saves time, money and the environmental impact of road projects large and small.
Now, RS&H has used the cold-in-place construction method for the first time on an airfield in Georgia, repaving Runway 16/34 at McKinnon St. Simons Island Airport. The airport was chosen by state officials to showcase the new, green method of aviation paving.
