Program Objectives:

  • Advance research, development, and implementation of next-generation sustainable roadway systems.
  • Integrate cutting-edge technologies from various disciplines to tackle real-world highway and airport pavement infrastructure problems.
  • Investigate sustainable paving materials and construction technologies, pavement non-destructive testing and evaluation, performance monitoring, maintenance, repair, and rehabilitation.
The overall goal of the Program for Sustainable Pavement Engineering & Research (PROSPER) is to advance research, education, and technology transfer in the area of sustainable highway and airport pavement infrastructure systems.
