Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices. Topic 50-09. Performance Based Pavement Warranty Practices

There is currently no national standard for pavement warranty projects. Some state departments of transportation (DOTs) have developed their own warranty specifications. These specifications vary in terms of pavement type, warranty type, warranty period, risk allocation items, performance evaluation methods, enforcement methods, etc. The objective of this synthesis is to document the use and effectiveness of performance-based pavement warranties by DOTs. The study will focus on both asphalt and concrete pavement projects with warranty periods of at least one year.
