Project Details

Project Description: 

The objective of this research is to support Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) by advancing the current knowledge and state-of-the-practice in the sciences and technologies utilized in the planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance and management of the porous-graded asphalt (PGA) used in the Nation's highways. This will require synthesizing relevant information available and building upon that information to develop and carry out a research and implementation plan.  Strategically, this research will enable and expedite the development and deployment of PGA, which will greatly improve the safety and efficiency of highway transportation.

Goals:

Develop and deliver a porous-graded asphalt design system that includes site selection, materials selection, mix design, structural design, and construction and maintenance guidance.
