List of Tier-Two Pavement Sites and Summary of Data and Information Supporting Selection

This report lists the pavement sites that will be included in the Texas Successful Flexible Pavements (TSFP) database. These 24 pavements, selected from the tier-one list of 75 nominated pavement sites, will receive a second tier of evaluation and testing by the research team and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT). The pavements selected for tier-two evaluations are representative of the best performing flexible pavements on the Texas state highway system. A goal of the selection process was that the tier-two pavements include all types of flexible pavements and that these pavements be distributed throughout the varied geographic and climatic regions of the state. The geographic locations of tier-two pavements are shown in Figure 1. Other considerations in the selection process were that the list should include a variety of material types, pavement designs, and levels of traffic. Because of these non-performance related selection factors, and because only a limited number of pavements could be included in the TSFP database at this time, the selected pavements do not constitute an exclusive list of the best performing Texas flexible pavements. A number of the other nominated pavements have provided equally impressive performances. A proposed list of tier-two pavement sites was presented to the research project monitoring committee during the first project milestone meeting, held June 29, 2006. The 24 pavement sites presented in Table 1 were approved at the milestone meeting. Further, it was decided at the meeting that it would be desirable to include two additional tier-two pavements, both carrying high traffic levels, and that these pavements should be located in the gulf coast and central Texas areas of the state. TxDOT agreed to take the initiative in identifying the additionally desired pavements.
