Loss of surface texture due to wear in highway pavements results in loss of skid resistance and thereby a reduction in potential safety. The wearability (the resistance to wear) of a concrete pavement surface is a function of the type of texture initially imparted to the surface, the type of aggregates used, and the manner in which the pavement is finished and cured. Four surface textures with variations, two coarse aggregates, two fine aggregates, and three methods of curing were examined using a laboratory test track. Results are being incorporated in field studies.
