SPR-4821: Validating Construction Practices and Material Performance Through Non-Destructive Testing: A Case Study Approach to Documenting Project Quality

INDOT Asset Management group is embarking on a multi-decade plan to update main rural interstate corridors with full depth reconstruction and added travel lanes. The proposed research will collect, document, and analyze data from two ongoing (active) projects to refine the existing draft version of the Unique Special Provision (USP). Subsequently, the refined USP will be used during the construction of two pilot-projects (“Case Studies”) with the goal to quantify the quality and reliability of the constructed product.
