The idea of utilizing different fibers to enhance the conduct of pavement is not new in nowadays. The modern developments of fiber fortification began in the mid-1960s. The fiber materials were presented and are ceaselessly being presented in the market as new applications for the pavement for example polyester fiber, asbestos fiber, glass fiber, polypropylene fiber, Carbon fiber, Cellulose fiber, etc. Among these distinctive fiber materials we have picked the glass fiber in light of the fact that the consequence of this review demonstrates that strengthening the bitumen clearing blend with glassfiber upgrades the general execution of the pavement. To study the effect of pavement when it is Partially replaced with glass fiber and how ductility and penetration value is varying by adding 1%,2%,3% glass fiber by replacing bitumen .The stability and flow values should be determined for nominal and modified mix by Marshall method by varying percentage of fibers.
