This paper presents a summary of three test roads that were constructed between 1964 and 1971 by the Florida Department of Transportation. The test sections were designed and constructed to be included as a part of the state's Satellite Test Road Program. The sections were designed to provide variations in surface and base-course thicknesses, type of base materials, and stability levels of sand-asphalt hot mix. The base courses evaluated included limerock, sand-asphalt hot mix, and shell. The individual test sections have been monitored to determine their structural behavior, condition, and serviceability. Test parameters for the constructed pavements were analyzed as a basis of comparison to test data on performance collected over several years. (Author)
