The Southern Region LTPP Program is administered by
Fugro Consultants, Inc.
, under contract to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA).
Fugro Consultants, Inc. has been involved with the LTPP program since the early 1980's.
The purpose of the LTPP program is to build and maintain a cost-effective highway system by understanding
why some pavements perform better than others. In 1987, the LTPP program began an on-going study consisting
of rigorous long-term field experiments monitoring more than 2,400 asphalt and Portland-cement concrete
pavement test sections across the U.S. and Canada. Established as part of the Strategic Highway Research
Program (SHRP) and now managed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), LTPP was designed as a partnership
with the States and Provinces. LTPP's goal is to help the States and Provinces make informed decisions that will
lead to better performing and more cost-effective pavements.
