Construction data for each section can be viewed by positioning your
mouse over the section in question and left-clicking. Be sure and page-down to see
all the data for multi-layered and/or multi-part sections. The entire buildup is shown in structural
sections, but only the upper (research) mixes are shown in sections with perpetual
Reconstruction of the 2015 experiment was completed in
September of 2015 by
East Alabama Paving, who was selected as the contractor via a competitive bidding
process. The sixth research cycle again consists of extended traffic sections, new
mix performance sections, instrumented structural sections, and pavement
preservation (on the Track, on Lee Road 159, and on US-280). The new
structural sections are part of a larger, multi-state validation effort to
identify laboratory tests that predict surface cracking in the field. Another 10 million ESALs is
planned to be completed by the fall of 2017.
