LTPP Product Preview: The Future is Now

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has prepared a brochure highlighting the products that have resulted--or will result--from the long-term pavement performance (LTPP) program, a 20-year study of in-service pavements across North America. The goal of the LTPP program is to develop improved pavement technologies for designing, building, and maintaining roads that will last longer. Products include information, computer software, analysis procedures, testing procedures, and design procedures and guidelines that respond to needs identified by highway agencies and industry.

The brochure groups the products in four categories:

  • Pavement Design Guides and Maintenance Strategies
  • Pavement Monitoring Procedures
  • Materials Testing
  • Equipment Standards and Calibration Procedures

Each product listing includes a description of the product and its intended use, the target audience for the product, and the applicability of the product (whether the product is intended to be used in a research environment, whether it needs to be modified for use in routine highway construction and maintenance activities, or whether the product can be readily used as is, without modification). The brochure lists the sources of products that are currently available and the expected date of availability for those products still under development.

A preprint of the brochure was distributed at the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in January.

To obtain a copy of the brochure, contact FHWA's Pavement Performance Division at 703-285-2355 (fax: 703-285-2767).
