Guide for Pavement-Type Selection
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.
In July 2013, the following errata on NCHRP Report 703 was issued: On page 67, in the second bullet point at the bottom of the page, the second to last sentence should read, “To maximize the economic value, the agency should consider alternatives that stimulate competition and incorporate innovative approaches.” The wording has been corrected in the online version of the report.
