This study proposed to use portable weigh-in-motion systems to collect sample truck data throughout the State of Arizona in lieu of standard loadometer testing. The primary purpose of data collection was to provide a large quantity of useful data for input into the pavement design process. It was also anticipated that the data would be helpful to state highway planners. Originally, data were to be collected at thirty sites on the Arizona State Highway System. The sites were selected by knowledgeable Arizona Department of Transportation personnel in order to increase the probability of obtaining a representative sample of truck traffic on Arizona's highways. Portable WIM Devices were evaluated for various applications and that evaluation is contained in this report.
