Report Date:  07/31/2013


This project synthesized published research about the use of tire-derived products in roadway construction, with a focus on the use of shredded tires in lightweight fill, retaining wall backfill, insulation layers, drainage layers and capillary moisture breaks. The information collected will be used in a review of MnDOT's standards, which were based mainly on research conducted in the 1980s and 1990s.
