MnROAD/NCAT Joint Study: National Partnership to Determine the Life Extending Benefit Curves of Pavement Preservation

MnDOT will be leading the pooled fund for the second phase of the pavement preservation study which is described at Main objectives for Phase-II of this effort includes: (1) Determining the life cycle cost of various pavement preservation alternatives in a highly controlled experiment that will provide state DOTs with the financial foundation to begin to build a decision tree for their own maintenance program. (2) Develop Quality Assurance (QA) field testing protocols to correlate construction practices with long term performance of pavement preservation techniques. (3) Technology transfer - Answering practical questions posed by research sponsors through formal (i.e., reports & technical papers) & informal (e.g., one-on-one responses to sponsor inquiries) technology transfer on how these life extending benefits can be best utilized in each state.
