Evaluating the Construction Cost and Schedule Impacts of SCDOT's Traffic Control Restrictions

The primary objectives of this research are to: (1) investigate how to effectively use Traffic Speed Deflectometer (TSD) data to classify structurally good, fair, and poor pavement sections for primary routes to improve candidate selection for rehabilitation projects; and (2) investigate how structural information can be used effectively for selection of potential rehabilitation candidates given limited resources. In addition, this project strives to provide: (1) a comparison of TSD measurements showing structural information with PMS pavement condition data; (2) the development of structural indices enabling the structural classification of primary route pavement sections; and (3) the development of a best methodology to prioritize rehabilitation candidates with the collected TSD data in conjunction with current ranking criteria.
