Longitudinal Joint Construction Performance

Status: Complete
Project End Date: Sept. 2018

Final report

Longitudinal Joint Construction Performance (pdf), Sept. 2018

Project summary

The construction of longitudinal joints in an asphalt pavement is typically the most difficult to achieve high density due to viscosity of pavements at high temperatures. Thus, deterioration of longitudinal joints is one of the major distresses facing agencies. The goal of this Tech Transfer would be to compile research and specifications from the NRRA states and others into a synthesis for publication.
