Project Details

Project Description: 

This is a continuation of the Concrete Pavement Road Map administrative/operations support activity funded by Federal Highway Administration and several States under the State Planning and Research Transportation Pooled Fund program. The ongoing support is being provided by Iowa State University's National Concrete Pavement Technology Center under a task order for an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract. The contract calls for support services to enable efficient execution of the Concrete Pavement Road Map research and technology plan that was developed in conjunction with our stakeholders through nationwide workshops held in 2002 through 2005. The support work consists primarily of (1) collection of research information, progress reports, etc.; (2) coordination of the Road Map research activities, people, and collaborating organizations; (3) communications (presentations, newsletters, Web site, etc.); and (4) implementation of research products. These activities help close the above gap by making people aware of advances. Also, the Concrete Pavement Road Map research projects themselves address many of the gaps that were identified in all the other focus areas.


The primary objective of the Concrete Pavement (CP) roadmap is to provide timely concrete pavement solutions and accelerate the adoption of new, proven, emerging technologies.

Research report or guidelines
Deliverable Description: 
The product is a monthly publication of E-news, each with links to a minimum of four research efforts highlighting State departments of transportation's (DOT's) concrete pavement research, practices, and new technologies. The E-news also highlights a "Moving Advancement into Practice (MAP)" brief providing an indepth description of new, emerging technologies that can be used now to enhance concrete paving practices.
