We took your advice regarding the cold in place recycling on our Interstate Frontage Road in Tucson Blair.  It (your solution) and time seemed to do the trick, as the surface healed and got tough.  We covered it with 1/2" Terminal Blend Asphalt Rubber Friction Course today.  It was 110 Deg. F today with a surface temperature of 154 this afternoon when the overlay went down.  Thanks for taking the time to visit our jobsite Blair!
