LONG TERM PERFORMANCE STUDIES OF SECTION VIA BALTICA IN ESTONIA

The Via Baltica is a north-south corridor through the Baltic countries. Its purpose is to connect the three Baltic states with each other, as well as with Finland, Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. The Via Baltica Estonian section is 193 km long and its average traffic density is under 3,000 cars/day. Only in the vicinity of large towns (Tallinn and Parnu) does the traffic density exceed 10,000. the long term performance studies on 17 LTPP test sections include: condition survey data collection, roughness testing by laser techniques, surface texture testing, deflection testing by falling weight deflectometer (FWD). The Texas Transportation Institute's back calculation program MODULUS 4.0 was used for the determination of layer module from the FWD measurements.
