Alternative Aggregates and Materials for High Friction Surface Treatments

The objectives of this research are to: (1) Conduct a comprehensive review of Florida's high friction surface treatments (HFST) experience. (2) Identify and document the best practices (good performing HFST projects) as well as the causes of the premature pavement failures on poorly performing HFST projects. (3) Identify alternative HFST materials or construction methods that may reduce the application costs and increase the pavement performance while being effective in reducing the crashes.
