Asphalt concrete pavement which is currently built in accordance with the existing requirements does not withstand the standard service life. Various kinds of damages occur. Fiber reinforcement of asphalt concretes is one of the effective means to deal with deformations and fractures of road pavements, such as rutting, buckling, crack formation and shear. Chemical fibers serving as reinforcement are of great concern herein. The major purpose of this work was evaluation of reinforcement fibers resistance to natural environment and climatic impacts within the conditions of experimental production construction and studying compactibility of asphalt concrete mixture with fiber reinforcement. Infrared spectroscopy and physical-chemical investigations of fibers were used to study changing properties of fiber-forming polymer. Compactibility of asphalt concrete mixture with fiber reinforcement was determined upon compaction factor. Research results revealed insignificant influence of natural environment and climatic impacts on the properties of fiber reinforcement material. In order to obtain the standard compaction factor of asphalt concrete additional compacting impact is not required.
