This summary report provides an overview of the performance of sulfur extended asphalt (SEA) paving mixtures at the WSU Test Track (Pullman, WA). A brief description of the mix designs, pavement structural design, test track loading apparatus and test pavement configurations is followed by a description of selected test track data (accelerations, temperatures and strain instruments). Finally, a description of the fatigue relationships developed from the WSU Test Track data is presented. Included are laboratory fatigue results.
