The purpose of this study was to investigate the current state of the practice with regard
to the use of reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) material for road base and subbase applications
and the potential for such use by the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT). To
achieve the objectives of the study, a comprehensive review of the literature was conducted and
the current state of the practice by other state departments of transportation was analyzed.
