Meet LTPP InfoPave
Participate in a live demonstration of LTPP InfoPave and catch up on other developments from the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program at the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) 93rd Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.
FHWA will introduce LTPP InfoPave at the State Coordinator’s Meeting on January 12, 2014. The Web-based program allows users to more easily tap into the wealth of pavement data available through the LTPP initiative. Representatives from the Minnesota and South Carolina departments of transportation will share their experiences in testing the system.
The program will officially debut at the “LTPP InfoPave Public Release” session on January 13. Attendees will learn how to use the system to obtain data for analysis, as well as how the program simplifies access to the LTPP database.
Live demonstrations of the new program will also be held on January 13 and 14 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Marriott Wardman Park Tower Meeting Room 8217. To find out more about the technical background of LTPP InfoPave, plan to attend TRB Poster Session 618 on January 14 from 2 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park, Salon 2.
Other developments in the LTPP program, including new warm-mix asphalt projects and an announcement of the 2014 International Data Analysis Contest, will be covered at the State Coordinator’s Meeting on January 12. Sponsored by FHWA and the American Society of Civil Engineers, the contest encourages college students, professors, State highway agency staff, industry representatives, and others to get involved in using the LTPP data.
To learn more about the LTPP program, visit the LTPP Exhibit Booth (No. 2111) in the Marriott Wardman Park Exhibit Hall. For additional information on the LTPP sessions at the TRB Annual Meeting, contact the LTPP Customer Support Service Center at 202-493-3035 (email: firstname.lastname@example.org). More details about the LTPP program are available at www.fhwa.dot.gov/research/tfhrc/programs/infrastructure/pavements/ltpp. Online resources include copies of publications, updates on data collection and analysis activities, and links to LTPP products.
