What started as a web page to inform the concrete pavement community about a series of tech transfer events held earlier this year has evolved to a comprehensive resource center, thanks to the efforts of Larry Scofield, ACPA Chapter Executives, subject matter experts, and ACPA staff.
The resource center documents concrete pavement sections in six states that are part of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Strategic Study of Structural Factors for Rigid Pavements, also known as the SPS-2 study.
One of the highlights of the page is a link that allows visitors to take a virtual tour of SPS-2 sections in Kansas, thanks to the efforts of Rick Miller of the Kansas DOT. The video player has some robust features that allow a thorough study (and data capture) of the Kansas SPS-2 sites.
The resource center also includes overview information and links to background information about the SPS-2 study; links to presentations about the pavements featured in the SPS-2 Tech Day programs; and field layouts for each of the showcased sections. Larry reports the sections range in age from 18 to 26 years old, and adds that plans are in the works to pursue a seventh SPS-2 site soon. Click here to see the SPS-2 Resource Center!
