AN EXTENSIVE REVIEW OF THE SPECIFICATIONS AND THE TESTS USED DURING CONSTRUCTION IN EACH OF CANADA'S PROVINCES AND IN THREE FEDERAL DEPARTMENTS IS PRESENTED. THE MATERIALS EXAMINED ARE ASPHALT, ASPHALT CONCRETE, PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE, BASE COURSE, SUB-BASE, AND SUBGRADES. THE IMPLICATIONS OF THESE SPECIFICATIONS AND THEIR ENFORCEMENT DURING CONSTRUCTION ARE TRACED BY REFERENCE TO THE PAVEMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OF THE CANADIAN GOOD ROADS ASSOCIATION. IN ODER TO EVALUATE THE PAVEMENT DESIGN METHODS USED BY THESE AGENCIES IT IS SUGGESTED THAT ADEQUATE HISTORIES OF THE MATERIALS USED BE MAINTAINED. PROBLEM AREAS DEFINED BY THIS STUDY ARE LISTED AND SUGGESTIONS REGARDING SPECIFICATIONS AND QUALITY CONTROL ARE PRESENTED. /CGRA/
