Prepared byMatthew Reckard, P.E. & John Ryer, P.EAlaska Department of Transportation & Public FacilitiesMay 1990Revised byGary L. Eddy, P.E.; Alaska DOT/PFStatewide Design & Engineering Services DivisionDesign & Construction StandardsJuly 2002, Third Edition
The information currently available on asphalt paving would fill a small library. Furthermore, DOT&PF'sAlaska Construction Manual describes procedures for the Department's staff to use on all aspects of construction projects. This manual draws on the Alaska Construction Manual and other sources but does notattempt to replace them as a reference for official Department policy. It is intended to present portions of thisinformation needed by laydown and asphalt plant inspectors in a convenient form. It also presents informationof value to paving materials inspectors. Material test procedures are so detailed, however, and testrequirements so variable between projects, that this manual presents only rather general information aboutthem.More information on asphalt and paving is available in the publications listed in Appendix F (FurtherReading). Many of these are available at your construction project office or the regional materials office. Acopy of the Alaska Construction Manual should also be at the project office.The Alaska Transportation Technology Transfer Center can provide a wealth of videotapes and publicationsdealing with paving and other transportation issues. Their address and phone number are listed in Appendix F.Many individuals and agencies assisted in the preparation of this manual by reviewing draft versions and bymaking photographs and figures available. Ed Schlect of the Asphalt Institute is notable in this regard. NicoleGreene and Sheree Warner spent many hours preparing the text for publication. The authors appreciate andacknowledge this help._____________________________________________________________________The third revision of this manual was accomplished with the help of Myles A. Comeau, Paving Inspector forNorthern Region for reviewing the manual for changes and recommendations. Jack Phipps, TransportationMaintenance Manager for Northern Region added the section on
 Necessities for a Successful High Float Project 
that was presented at the Asphalt Summit in 1997. R. Scott Gartin, Statewide Materials, PavementManagement Engineer for his paper on

Gary L. Eddy, P.E., Construction Standards Engineer, for reformatting, making corrections,printing and placing the Manual on the ADOT & PF Design & Construction Standards Home Page.Readers should consult the Asphalt Institute MS-19, a Basic Emulsion Manual for information regarding HighFloat and Chip Seal surface treatments. In October 2001, the
“Asphalt Surface Treatment Guide” by Robert L. McHattie, P.E. was completed for the Department. This is not a Design Guide, it covers materials selectionand quality, construction methods, and troubleshooting three types of asphalt surface treatments used in Alaska.
