Loftus Road Extension Project--Final Report. Part A: Parks/Chena Ridge Air Convection Embankment Experimental Feature Performance Report, Jan. 2001 to Dec. 2003. Part B: Loftus Road/Thompson Drive Final Instrumentation Report

This report consists of two parts. Part A summarizes data collected as part of the project entitled 'Air Convection Embankment Experimental Feature Design' which was funded by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. The project involved the design and monitoring of an experimental Air Convection Embankment (ACE) which was included as an experimental feature in the Parks/Chena Ridge Interchange project [Federal Project No. I-0A4-5(7), State of Alaska Project No. 63538]. Data are included for January 2001 through December 2003. See Goering (1997) for details regarding the design and construction of the ACE experimental feature, and Goering [1998, 1999, and 2001(a)] for data analysis which extends from November 1996 through December 2000. Part B provides a review and summary of the final instrumentation of the Loftus Road/Thompson Drive test sections. The original instrumentation plan, additions to that plan, and a review of the final installation are discussed. Initial data collection efforts and data verification are described but no formal data analysis is included. For a complete discussion of the original design report, including a summary of the recommended instrumentation plan, see Goering [2001(b)].
