About the research

Current public surveys indicate that the traveling public wishes to have smooth, quiet, and safe pavements. This project collected existing information and identified the challenges remaining to developing smooth, quiet, and safe concrete pavements. A framework for additional research was developed around the following areas: texture and traffic noise, pavement friction, and pavement smoothness.
