Goals: The objective of this task order is to provide publishing support to the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program in finalizing a report that fully documents (to date) the history and accomplishments of the LTPP program.
Background Information: This report covers the data collection, data processing, and data analysis activities of the program. This historical document will provide technical and programmatic detail on how the test sites were selected and the rationale used for developing and implementing products. It will also include policy statements for managing the daily activities of this research program.
