Abstract: 
The Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) has ongoing studies on certain resurfacing techniques used to combat reflective cracking. Various test sites have yielded results since 1997 for polyethylene-modified asphalt pavements or waterproofing courses, and for crack repair involving sawing or planing. Another study, on the effectiveness of bituminous membranes and geosynthetic materials, was initiated in 1998. Although these studies are still in their early stages, certain patterns have already been observed, which seem to indicate that localized repairs and elastomere membranes are particularly effective in delaying the reappearance of transverse cracks.
