Test Track. The primary objective of this site is to successfully communicate our
experiences to the world as we strive to assist governmental agencies nationwide in
streamlining the practical application of research designed to extend the life of flexible
pavements. We appreciate your feedback.
UPDATE - As of the close of business on
January 31st, 1,014,547 ESAL's had
been applied to the surface of experimental mixes on the tangents of the Track. This
represents approximately 10% of the two-year goal of 10,000,000 total ESAL's. No
cracking or appreciable rutting had occurred as of this date.
BE PATIENT - THIS PAGE HAS BEEN MOVED TO A MORE RELIABLE SERVER AND MUST BE DEBUGGED!
