About the research
The purpose of this study will be to provide equipment to contractors and agencies for the installation of a safety edge during the construction process on hot mix asphalt (HMA) projects, and to evaluate the results. Safety edge technology can be applied to both new construction and resurfacing improvements. Also, the study will investigate the feasibility of extending this technique to Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement.
