Publication Details

Guidelines for the Collection of Long-Term Pavement Performance Data Research/Reference: useful for researchers doing further work in the pavement area as well as those developing improved testing and design procedures. Includes documents of historical value.

Primary Topic: Surface and Other Considerations

Description: A set of data collection guidelines has been provided for the collection of all data obtained for the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program. These guidelines were provided to the Regional Support Contractors (RSC) to facilitate data collection on a uniform basis. Over time, additional documents were developed providing more specific requirements for the collection of LTPP data. The primary purpose for the various data collection guides is to provide a uniform basis for data collection during long-term monitoring of the performance of pavement test sections under study by the LTPP program initiated under Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) and continued under the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). As methods for collection of the data have changed and improved over the years, the guidelines used in obtaining these data have changed. The objective of this document is not to provide the exact guidelines, but rather to provide references for the guidelines and revisions to those guidelines used in collecting each type of data for LTPP over the lifetime of the LTPP program.
