RESURFACING, RESTORATION, AND REHABILITATION OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAYS: CRITERIA AND LOGIC USED TO DETERMINE JANUARY 3, 1977, NEEDS AND ESTIMATES OF COSTS
This report documents procedures and brings together data and correlations used by the Kentucky Bureau of Highways in developing the Resurfacing, Restoration and Rehabilitation (R-R-R) Cost Estimate under a set of guidelines. Data compiled includes a list of interstate construction contracts, pavement roughness data, traffic volume data, vehicle classification, lane distributions, and damage factors for several types of vehicle classifications. Correlations are presented for both the serviceability index, designed fatigue life, existing structural worth, and between serviceability index and pavement roughness. Overlay thickness requirements were determined for rigid pavements and flexible pavements. Lastly, standard overlay design cross-sections and unit cost estimates are discussed.
