Benefit/Cost of Applying a Higher Asphalt Film Thickness (AFT) vs. doing a Chip Seal at 1 Year

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  11/14/2023


In Minnesota, reducing the influence of oxidation is a continuous challenge. Researchers will compare the effectiveness of two different methods: applying a surface treatment (typically a fog or chip seal) and increasing the asphalt film thickness during original construction.
