What is Full-Depth Reclamation (FDR)?

FDR is an in-place recycling method for reconstruction of existing pavements using the existing pavement material as the base for the new roadway, with two layers of blacktop placed to replace the wearing surface.  FDR is utilized when existing pavement or underlying gravel is deteriorated to a point where a mill and overlay would not effectively extend the roadway service life by 20 additional years.
