California, Texas, Minnesota and Washington are among the leading states in the research, development and deployment of advanced pavement technology. Each State Department of Transportation (DOT) has a continuing research and development program designed to improve its pavement design, rehabilitation, construction, and maintenance procedures. Each has long-standing research relationships with universities within that State, and all State DOTs have made substantial investments in research equipment and facilities. These programs have produced significant improvements in pavement technology resulting in improved pavement practices. Such practices aid all road owning public agencies in each state, and also benefits university education.
This pooled fund project established a working relationship among the four State DOT organizations. Under this agreement, each state allocated funding to allow DOT personnel and university researchers to participate in a series of technical meetings. Washington acted as the lead state for this pooled fund project, and produced the minutes and other related documentation.
