The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) represents a massive research effort aimed at developing implementable solutions to five well-defined pavement problem areas. Pavement management systems for the purpose of optimizing the impact of available rehabilitation funds have been adopted by many states and local governmental agencies. Pavement performance has been improved by positive rapid drainage, the use of fabrics, and binder additives. Pavement recycling has evolved to the point where significant cost savings can be realized. Future needs include adoption of preventive maintenance programs, improved pavement design procedures and a different approach to construction quality control.
