PlusRide Asphalt Concrete Pavement - SR 405, Contract 2768, S Curve/Cedar River Bridge and RR Bridge

Description: The performance of an experimental installation of PlusRide ACP as a bridge deck overlay is summarized in this report. Visual inspections, friction tests, noise readings and rut depth measurements were taken on both the PlusRide and a rubberized ACP control section. No evidence of better frictional properties, noise reduction or increased service life could be attributed to the PlusRide in comparison with the rubberized ACP control section.
