In April, AASHTO released updates to the sections pertaining to Hydraulic Cements, Concrete, Concrete-Related Materials, Pavement Serviceability, Environmental Quality, and Quality Assurance.
In August, AASHTO will release updates to the sections on Geotechnical, Bituminous Materials, and Mixtures.
These standards reflect the minimum standards that apply to Interstate highway segments constructed on new right-of-way and segments undergoing reconstruction along existing right-of-way. These standards, which include changes based on research and practice since the previous 2005 edition, are designed for use with A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets, 6th Edition (the “Green Book”). Design values are presented in both U.S. customary and metric units. 2016. 12 pp.
