Apr 12, 2021 Basalt with excellent mechanical properties is the preferred choice for the surface layer of the pavement, but it has high price and limited sources. Since the skid resistance of the lower layer of the double-layer porous asphalt pavement is not highly expected, it is worthwhile to explore the potential of using limestone in the lower layer.
