Statewide Implementation of New Binder Selection Catalog and New Binder Performance Tests

The Performing Agency shall assist Receiving Agency with implementing the new binder selection catalog developed in research project 0-6674-01 and to expand the existing statewide binder properties database with new binder performance tests. The Performing Agency shall implement the new binder selection catalog in five (5) Receiving Agency Districts, including, but not limited to Amarillo, Dallas, Austin, Bryan, and Paris. In each Receiving Agency District, the Performing Agency shall work with Receiving Agency District design engineers and laboratory staff to design a mix with the binders in the new catalog and construct and monitor selected test sections in each Receiving Agency District. The Performing Agency shall then use the data generated in these test sections to develop and teach implementation workshops for Receiving Agency District design engineers in a minimum of five (5) Receiving Agency Districts. The Performing Agency shall present the results at the Receiving Agency’s annual Construction Conference or Short Course.
