Project Details

Project Description: 

This project will determine the optimum time to reopen pavements to traffic after floods, when emergency and repair vehicles can be allowed back on pavements, and the long-term effects of these vehicles on long-term pavement performance.

Goals:

The objectives of this project are to determine the best time to open pavements after floods and to develop models for long-term effects of floods on pavement performance and life.
