AASHTO MEPDG Calibration Continuation

The objectives of this project are: (1) Review current activities relating to local calibration procedures of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). (2) Review in-service pavement sections to correlate predicted performance with actual performance to adjust the MEPDG prediction models. (3) Develop appropriate calibration factors for each predicted distress. (4) Develop a strategic plan for final implementation and integration of the new design guide into Kentucky's design process.
