LEE, VANBARNEVELD, CORBETT 2 Historically, the Regional Municipality of Ottawa-Carleton (RMOC) used 85/100 penetration grade binder with typical Performance Grade (PG) 58-22 in all conventional hot asphalt mixes. The low pavement temperature extreme encountered during any given winter in Ottawa-Carleton is generally below-26 0 C. This has resulted in a high frequency of low temperature cracking (transverse cracking). The RMOC uses SUPERPAVE PG 58-34 asphalt mixes and the Cold In-Place Recycling (CIPR) process to mitigate the low temperature cracking problem. To assess the cost effectiveness of these pavement alternatives to conventional hot mix, a network wide evaluation and correlation of costing, performance, serviceability and life cycle were carried out. In this study, a total of 38 Regional arterial roads were analyzed consisting of about 800 lane-km of roadway. Each road under analysis is further dynamically sectioned by asphalt type, last rehabilitatio
