PMSS Project Details


Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-13-0020
Project Name: Develop and Deploy End-Result/Performance-Based Specifications for Pavement Construction
Status: Active
Last Name:Duval
First Name:Richard
Office: Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:Infrastructure Analysis and Construction Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:Develop guide performance specifications for jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) once outcomes from related studies are completed.
Start Date: October 14, 2013
End Date: October 14, 2018
Further develop and field validate performance-related specifications for both asphalt and concrete pavements. This effort is intended to build off earlier Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) projects and the State Highway Research Program (SHRP) 2 R07 project, which focuses on performance-related specification. The objectives will be based on the outcomes from the hot-mix asphalt (HMA) (FHWA-PROJ-08-0002) and jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) (FHWA-PROJ-O8-0043) studies. It will address some of the gaps identified as the products of SHRP2 R07 move into implementation.
Test Methodology: Specification development with field validation.
Expected Benefits:Guide specifications for agency use.
Deliverables:Name: Specifications for performance-related specifications (PRS) for asphalt and concrete pavements.
Product Type(s): Research report, Draft standard, specifications, or guidelines
Description: Guide performance specifications for pavements.
Keywords: Infrastructure
