SPR-4209: Real Life Experience with Major Pavement Types

This project will examine the performance of selected pavements near the ends of their projected service lives to determine their actual life cycle and mode of failure. The intent is to investigate the true life cycle costs, accuracy of design assumptions, and the ‘weakest links’ that contribute to failure. Appropriate changes in the structural and material designs can then be made to reduce or eliminate these failure mechanisms to prolong the pavement service lives.
