PERFORMANCE STUDY OF THE BITUMINOUS CONCRETE SECTION OF THE JOHN F. KENNEDY EXPRESSWAY (I-95)

The main objective of this study is to evaluate the structural adequacy of the rehabilitated and resurfaced flexible pavement section of the JFK Expressway (I-95). This evaluation utilizes the "Asphalt Institute's Deflection Method for Designing Asphalt Concrete Overlays for Asphalt Pavements." Benkelman Beam static rebound deflection tests were made each spring for five years. Between 1973 and 1976, twelve of twenty-two areas did not show statistically significant changes. Of the ten areas showing change, one area was singled out in early readings for poor performance. Only three other areas showed statistically significant changes and had recommended overlays of 2" or more. /FHWA/
