Analysis of Idaho LTPP GPS and SPS Data to Predict Pavement Performance Grant uri icon



  • The goal of this project is to analyze the long-term pavement performance (LTPP) data related to the Idaho sections for the following purposes:
    • Study the performance characteristics of Idaho pavements and the effectiveness of the preventive maintenance techniques
    • Develop performance prediction models that will address pavement structure, material properties, effects of environment and traffic loading
    • Develop recommendations that address pavement performance issues in Idaho and optimum methods of preventive maintenance treatments
    Expected outcomes are:
    • Assessment of pavement performance in the state of Idaho in various LTPP design experiments
    • Implementation of the AASHTO Mechanistic-Empirical design guide in Idaho
