16. Abstract

The Advanced Concrete Pavement Technology (ACPT) Products Program is an integrated, national effort to improve the long-term performance and cost-effectiveness of the Nation's concrete pavement highways. Managed by the Federal Highway Administration through partnerships with State highways agencies, industry, and academia, the goals of the ACPT Products Program are to reduce congestion, improve safety, lower costs, improve performance, and foster innovation. The ACPT Products Program was developed to identify, refine, and deliver for implementation the available technologies that can enhance the design, construction, repair, and rehabilitation of the Nation's concrete highways.

A status report (FHWA Report No. FHWA-HIF-09-005) on ACPT products was prepared in March 2009. That report documented the availability of advanced concrete pavement technology products that show a high potential for improving the performance of concrete pavements through improved design, material selection, construction practices, testing procedures, and repair and rehabilitation techniques. These products are considered candidates for technology transfer to highway agencies, academia, and industry.

This report provides a marketing plan for carrying out the technology transfer activities that will support delivery and implementation of promising ACPT products.
