Looking to the Future of Pavement Technology

To achieve smoother, durable, and more cost-effective asphalt and concrete pavements is a foremost goal of the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Pavement Technology as it works nationwide with State, local, and industry partners.

The Great Pavement Profiler Round-Up

Sixty-eight road profilers. Two test tracks. Five days. The largest road profiler comparison and verification study to date was held April 4–8, 2004, at the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Smart Road Facility in Blacksburg, Virginia, and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s road profiler testing facility in Newville, Pennsylvania. Sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the profiler “round-up” study was performed by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI).

Your Pavement and Materials Connection

They’re all about pavements. The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Pavement and Materials Technical Service Team (TST) offers information and technology to help State and local agencies and others design and build better pavements. Headquartered in FHWA’s Resource Center office in Atlanta, Georgia, the team also has members located across the country. The team is one of 10 new specialized TSTs created by FHWA in 2003.

In Brief

Numerous technical advisories on various pavement topics are now available on the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Office of Pavement Technology Web site at www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/ta.htm. The advisories provide technical guidance and information on recommended practices.
