Rideability Issues for Asphalt and Concrete Specification Modifications

The objectives of this study are to: (1) summarize and review concerns on the current rideability specifications, with special attention paid to the discrepancy between asphalt and concrete rideability specifications; (2) analyze the historical data on rideability for asphalt and concrete projects; (3) analyze the effects of initial rideability from aspects such as driving quality, vehicle operating costs, and pavement service life; and (4) evaluate the necessity for the current specification changes in order to address the concerns and to recommend specification modifications based on research results.
