Demonstration to Advance New Pavement Technologies Pooled Fund

Since 2013, the Accelerated Implementation and Deployment of Technologies Pavement Technologies Program (AIDPT), in partnership with State Departments of Transportation (DOTs), academia and industry, has identified asphalt and concrete paving advancements, and implemented effective strategies for rapid deployment of new and promising technologies. This pooled-fund project will continue to achieve the goals of the AIDPT Program by serving as a mechanism to deploy and showcase pavement technologies and resources. Recent Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)-led demonstration initiatives include increased in-place asphalt density and performance engineering concrete mixtures. To further and enhance the Program’s demonstration initiatives, the FHWA will identify up to three pavement technology topics for consideration under this pooled-fund project that align with the FHWA Pavement and Materials program areas. Topics for consideration include the following: (1) Development of Balanced Mix Design (BMD) for asphalt and performance engineered mixture (PEM) for concrete program; (2) Implementation of strategic pavement preservation programs; and (3) Integration of sustainability and resiliency into decision-making process, technical frameworks, education efforts, and stakeholder engagement. This pooled fund seeks to support and showcase the implementation of innovative pavement technologies, products, and processes by State DOTs by leveraging of Federal investments with State DOT partnerships.
