Optimizing Winter Roadway Treatments for Georgia Pavements

This research aims to optimize the winter treatment operations and especially to minimize the impact to Georgia pavements. Both anti-icing and de-icing operations will be considered in the research. The objectives of this research are: (1) to examine the effectiveness of commonly used ice-control chemicals in Georgia at different dosages; (2) to evaluate the deterioration of pavement surface course caused by commonly used ice-control chemicals; and (3) to propose practical and optimum solutions for anti-icing/de-icing to Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
