TRC2001 - Determining Costs Attributable to Overweight Axle Loads

About 8,100 load shift tickets were issued in 2017 for overweight axle or axle group load limit violations. TRC2001 will determine if there is a significant amount of damage on Arkansas roadways due to overweight axle or axle group loads and determine pavement and bridge repair life-cycle costs attributed to overweight axle and axle groups. A literature review and a survey to other State departments of transportation (DOTs) will identify various methodological approaches. Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) training will support pavement conditions assessment. The research team will then develop a methodology to quantify damages caused by overweight axle and axle groups. The survey results, load shift citations, and data from FWD tests will be collected and analyzed.
