Description

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 703: Guide for Pavement-Type Selection includes processes for conducting systematic evaluations of pavement alternatives and for making decisions on pavement-type selection.

The processes may be used for both agency-based and contractor-based type selections and may be applied to different pavement types and structures.

Further elaboration on the work performed in developing this report is available online.
