This report has been prepared as a sequence to the author's publication entitled, "Experimental Paving Projects using Curtiss-Wright's Coal-Modified, Coal-Tar Binder (Construction Phase)."

The previous study was concerned with the selection of test sites, the construction of the test and control sections, and the laboratory investigation performed before and d uring the construction period. This project started in April, 1959, when the Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced the development of a new and superior road-paving binder utilizing bituminous coal. The development was the result of their research program conducted in an effort to find new uses for coal and coal products.
