CONSTRUCTION OF THE TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH CENTER TEST TRACK

At the Transportation Research Center, located on 8,100 acres approximately 50 miles northwest of Columbus, Ohio, a test track was designed and constructed. The purpose of this paper is to describe the relevant and unique design and construction details of the base materials and portland cement concrete placed on the 7.5-mile-long loop of the test track. The paper also relates construction details and problems that eventually led to changes in the contract design.
