RESPONSIBILITY FOR QUALITY IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION

THE PROBLEMS OF RESPONSIBLE CONTROL FOR QUALITY IN HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION ARE DISCUSSED. PERFORMANCE DEPENDS ON THE DESIGN OF THE PAVEMENT STRUCTURE AT LEAST AS MUCH AS ON THE QUALITY OF MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION USED. THE ULTIMATE CONCEPT IN RESPONSIBILITY WOULD BE HAVING THE CONTRACTOR OR GOVERNMENT AGENCY REQUIRED TO DESIGN, BUILD AND GUARANTEE THE PERFORMANCE OF THE HIGHWAY. HOWEVER, INITIATIVE IN USING NEW CONSTRUCTION METHODS MUST NOT BE HAMPERED. CONSTRUCTION CONTROL TOLERANCES AND THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR QUALITY CONTROL TESTING ARE DISCUSSED.
