Performance of Wicking Geotextile (H2Ri) to Mitigate Pavement Pumping - Phase 2

Pumping is one of the major factors contributing toward pavement failures. In a recently completed project, three field test sections were established in a full depth shoulder replacement project at Milepost 117.2 on I-44 in September 2018 to assess the effectiveness of the H2Ri wicking fabric in mitigating pumping of concrete shoulders. The main objective of this project is to maintain the data collection system at the I44 test sections and continue to monitor the long term performance of the H2Ri wicking fabric at the test site for another two years from April 1, 2020 to March 30, 2022.
