Study Description

State transportation agencies in the northeastern United States are heavily involved with the implementation and use of the SuperPave method of designing hot-mix asphalt (HMA) mixtures. It has been determined that there are several unanswered issues before the full benefits of using the SuperPave system and related concepts can be totally embraced and integrated into the operations of state transportation agencies. Many issues vary regionally and to address these regional issues and other paving and pavement problems, this project was established.

Objectives

To promote and provide coordination, guidance and assistance on paving and pavement problems in the northeast.

Scope of Work

PROPOSED PHASE 2 SCOPE has been scaled back to serve the needs primarily of the six participating states, as follows:

1) Develop and implementation a region-wide asphalt binder database

2) Analyze binder test data collected to compare the PG grade determined by using AASHTO MP-1a versus AASHTO M320

3) Conduct focused agency HMA laboratory visits (conducted by CTI staff) at participating state laboratories to enable collaborative and constructive information sharing related to particular HMA tests. (Work may include visits to limited number of producer labs if the TAC approves)

4) Communicate frequently with states to share new information on paving technology and procedures through:

a) Interactive Internet-based communication tool

b) Series of Asphalt Roundtable discussions

Antic. Duration: 18 months

9-2007 Revised Est. Cost: $60,000

Comments

10-4-07: We will be moving ahead with commitments from six states to initiate Phase 2, which has not yet started.

Suggested proportional annual pledge levels for northeast states are:

$40,000/yr: PA, NY

$20,000/yr: NJ

$10,000/yr: MA, MD, CT

$5,000/yr: DC, DE, ME, NH, RI, VT

======================

Phase 1 was completed June 2004. Cost was $80,000. Agreement ended 6/30/04. One of the Phase 1 deliverables was a Web site that presents information, abstracts and links to pavement information pertinent to the Northeast state DOTs. http://www.cti.uconn.edu/ti/pavement/index.htm

The site was last updated in June 2004 at the conclusion of Phase 1.

Subjects: Pavement Design, Management, and Performance
