Evaluation of Ultra-Thin Whitetopping (UTW) and Whitetopping Design Procedure

This project is part of an effort to meld the current empirical and theoretical knowledge of pavements with UTW and conventional PCC overlay design with Illinois-specific experience to develop tools and guidelines to effectively design these overlay types for IDOT's use. Existing UTW design procedures will be critically reviewed for potential adoption for IDOT, and in collaboration with ICT personnel, a list will be compiled of all available whitetopping and UTW field sections located in Illinois. Recommendations will be formulated on the most viable UTW design procedure for IDOT's use and any needed changes.
