Pavements Past and Future

When Henry Ford introduced the Model T to the public in 1908, transportation was forever changed. Automobiles ballooned in popularity and with that came the need for infrastructure capable of supporting them. The past 100 years have been transformative for highway construction and engineering, with the formation of the Transportation Research Board, the establishment of the Interstate Highway system, the engineering of unique roads, and the development of technologies that have streamlined transportation and improved safety.

Now, new tech is coming to surface transportation faster than ever before.  Connected and automated vehicles and trucks, new sensors, drones, and new tech will make major changes to the way roads are designed and built and used.

The future of pavements needs to consider the environment, costs, and value of time.  Several of Transtec’s current research and engineering projects involve providing resilient, sustainable and cost effective pavement solutions.
