Ohio Takes Perpetual Pavement Another Step Forward

This article describes the state of Ohio’s newest perpetual pavement project, an eight-mile stretch of U.S. 30 in Wayne County. The westbound lanes were to be asphalt perpetual pavement. The article discusses the history of the design concept which has led to the specifications of the pavement buildup: a six-inch building platform of highly crushed densely graded granular base with under drains; a four-inch bottom-fatigue resistant layer; a nine-inch middle-high modulus layer; and a 3.25-inch top-sacrificial layer composition. The project was expected to open to traffic in the fall of 2005. The article discusses the objectives of various research projects set to examine the mechanical properties of the materials used, the collection of environmental and load response data, and the validation of the perpetual pavement design procedures.
