Ride Quality of Asphalt Pavements

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  12/21/2023

Summary:

Local agencies reported two issues with asphalt pavements: ride quality and overlays and reflective cracking. This focus of this project was to 1) Review and synthesize past research. 2) Survey local agencies to gather data, specifics, and current practices. 3) Conduct a series of working group meetings to identify causes and potential resolutions. The report is a compilation of synthesizing technical documents along with input from practitioners. Some of the reported information is research based; some is anecdotal and/or advice from experienced practitioners. The intent of this document is to provide an overview so agencies can draw their own conclusions on how to best address these issues.
