Evaluation of Open Graded Friction Courses: Construction, Maintenance, and Performance, Phase II

The main objective of this study is to determine how to improve the longterm durability and performance of open graded friction course (OGFC) mixtures in South Carolina. The results of this project will enhance the understanding of the factors associated with OGFC long-term durability, thus increasing the likelihood of designing and constructing longer lasting OGFC layers on South Carolina roadways that are safer and have lower life-cycle costs.
