Project Description:   The final report, currently entitled LTPP: 20 Years of Pavement Research – A Summarizing Review of the Long-Term Pavement Performance Program, will tell the story of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program. Thus, it will serve as an invaluable document to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) management, State highway agency personnel, and researchers in describing how the program began, accomplishments and challenges faced along the way, and the plans for the future. The first draft of the report is completed and currently consists of the following: PrefaceWelcome to LTPPOrigins of LTPPProgram Management and Communication Design and Recruitment of the ExperimentsCollection of LTPP Data  Storage, Dissemination, and Security of LTPP DataLTPP Data Quality EffortsTurning Data Into Results Paving the Way to the FutureThe Federal Investment in LTPPLessons LearnedAppendices (Data Collection Equipment, Expert Task Groups)
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 This historical document will provide technical and programmatic detail on how the test sites were selected and the rationale used for developing and implementing products.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.
