Report Date:  05/03/2018

Summary:

The National Road Research Alliance (NRRA), a multi-state pooled-fund program, exists to provide strategic implementation of pavement engineering solutions through cooperative research. NRRA is led by an Executive Committee of state DOT partners, and supported by numerous agency and industry partner representatives. Members provide expertise to NRRA, from the selection of research topics, to communication, and implementation. NRRA consists of five project teams: Flexible, Rigid, Geotechnical, Preventive Maintenance, and Technology Transfer. The 2017 construction season at MnROAD saw construction of 35 new and unique pavement test sections. The sections, designed to address NRRA high-priority research topics, were conceived and planned by NRRA project teams. This report details development, design, and construction of each research project and the test sections supporting them. Individual study details are left to future reports generated by the individual research contracts and their respective teams.
