Pavement rehabilitation design
includes analyzing data, developing typical sections based on type and thickness of pavement layers, materials blends and source availability, life cycle cost analysis, and other factors affecting design and construction of pavements.
Asphalt concrete mix designs
includes recommendations for the design of asphalt concrete overlays, design of concrete pavement repairs, asphalt mix & binder type, asphalt mix application rates and other requirements for design and construction.
Portland cement concrete mix designs
includes determining the optimal aggregate blend and asphalt binder content for each project based on the materials and specifications to be used.
Pavement smoothness testing
Responsibilities include determining the cementious material, fine and coarse aggregate, concrete additives and water combinations necessary to optimize strength, durability and workability of a concrete pavement. Also, determines and reviews special concrete mixes for particular applications and is involved with the testing and acceptance of the pipe, precast, and prestressed items.
Coring of pavements
Includes verification of the smoothness of newly constructed concrete and asphalt roadways.
Includes coring of concrete and asphalt pavements to determine thickness of the surfacing materials.
Bituminous (liquid asphalt) lab
Includes providing technical assistance relating to materials problems to field personnel and other governmental entities during design and construction.
Asphalt mix design lab
Includes performing acceptance testing of all liquid asphalt used in construction and maintenance statewide.
Includes performing and verifying Contractor submitted asphalt mix designs. Mix designs are performed using Marshall Mix and Superpave Mix Designs Methods.
Includes performing concrete mix designs, testing of concrete admixtures, and testing of concrete pipe.
Includes performing tests on cement, fly ash, curing compounds and reinforcing steel.
Includes conducting periodic inspection and acceptance testing at wood treatment & metal pipe plants, evaluation of traffic paints, and performs other special acceptance tests.
Nuclear calibration lab
Includes performing quality tests on all aggregate samples.
Includes gage procurement, calibration and repair.
