In 1999, representatives of the State Departments of Transportation for California, Texas, Minnesota, and Washington began collaborating for improved pavement research and technology. Known as the State Pavement Technology Consortium, the group has shared information on pavement practices, including new design, rehabilitation, decision-making, training, research, and research implementation. The consortium has identified a common interest in the following topics: temperature differentials, construction duration and logistics, longitudinal joints, improved in-situ characterization, longer life pavement, training, pavement smoothness, asphalt concrete moisture sensitivity, Superpave performance, and alternative materials for dowel bars and portland cement concrete reinforcement.
