About the research

This project will fully implement the PCC Surface Characteristics program by continuing comprehensive data collection on new and existing pavements started in 2005 under the Type 1 and Type 2 experiments through 2009 for time and history data; analyzing the data to identify clear relationships between texture, noise, friction, etc.; developing and evaluating construction specifications of conventional texture techniques including grinding; and developing and evaluating innovative construction techniques that have the potential to significantly reduce noise.
