Pre-Construction and Next Generation Concrete Surface (NGCS) Noise Monitoring on US 290 in Harris County

The purpose of this project is to implement diamond grinding procedures to improve tire noise characteristics of existing Portland Cement Concrete Pavements (PCCP). This implementation project encompasses the evaluation of the before and after pavement noise performance of sections of PCCP pavement that will undergo a diamond grinding treatment in the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Houston District in a date to be determined by the construction schedule, as well as the documented procedures and results of the project. The diamond grinding treatments will encompass existing transversally tined PCCP sections of the USZ90 expansion in the Houston District. The resulting treated sections will follow grinding procedures that will qualify them as "Next Generation Concrete Surfaces."
