MEPDG Peer Exchange Meeting

On April 14-15, 2015, pavement professionals from Northwest states (including Alaska, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, California, Idaho, Montana, Washington) were invited to share state experiences with the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) at the FHWA's MEPDG Peer Exchange meeting in Portland, OR. Attendees presented varied topics on AASHTOWare Pavement M-E Design, materials, design, climate, traffic, performance prediction and validations, implementation and local calibrations. Associated lessons learned and challenges were discussed as well. On behalf of the state of Alaska, Dr. Steve Saboundjian, Statewide Pavement Engineer at AKDOT&PF and Dr. Jenny Liu, Director of CESTiCC, presented Findings in Characterization of Alaska Transportation Materials (hot mix asphalt, granular base, and asphalt treated base course materials) for M-E Pavement Design through several AKDOT&PF funded research projects.
