Pavement Surface Properties Consortium - A Research Program at the Virginia Smart Road Phase II

The main objective of this pooled-fund program has been to conduct applied research focused on enhancing the level of service provided by the roadway transportation system by optimizing pavement surface characteristics. Phase 2 of the program is expected to continue to support the members' effort to produce high-quality surface property measurements, evaluate new technologies, disseminate research findings, and facilitate technology transfer activities. This second phase will focus on addressing some of the emerging challenges in the evaluation of pavement surface properties and the changes needed to best support the next generation of pavement asset management systems, including support for Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP21) related initiatives. It will also seek participation of industry through traditional membership or an industrial affiliate program.
