R&T Portfolio: Deployment of Pavement Technologies

The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Accelerated Implementation and Deployment of Pavement Technologies Program serves as the implementation and deployment mechanism for innovations produced by FHWA’s Pavement and Materials Research and Development Program and Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) research. These efforts provide tools, technology, and guidance to improve the safety, durability, sustainability, and cost effectiveness of highway pavement through performance-engineered mix design and innovative material use.

Program Objectives:

  • Deploy new, cost-effective designs, materials, recycled materials, and practices to extend the pavement performance and to improve user satisfaction.
  • Reduce initial cost and lifecycle costs of pavements, including the costs of new construction, replacement, maintenance, and rehabilitation.
  • Deploy accelerated construction techniques to increase safety and reduce construction time and traffic disruption and congestion.
  • Deploy new nondestructive and real-time pavement evaluation technologies and construction techniques.
  • Provide effective technology transfer and information dissemination to accelerate implementation of new technologies and to improve life, performance, cost effectiveness, safety, and user satisfaction.
