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

Pavement warranties have been common in the United States at various points in time, coming back into favor during the 1990s. While there is no national pavement warranty standard, agencies have developed their own specifications with varying criteria. The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 553: Performance-Based Pavement Warranty Practices documents highway agency practices associated with the use of performance-based pavement warranties, focusing on asphalt, concrete, and composite pavement projects (new, preservation, and rehabilitation) with warranty periods of at least one year.
