Expected Benefits:The projects that comprise the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) data analysis program serve two broad functions that must be addressed if LTPP is to fulfill expectations. The projects provide the basis for identifying and developing products that engineers and managers can apply to design more cost-effective and better- performing pavements, and check whether the data being collected are of the quality and completeness needed to find answers to how and why pavements perform as they do.
