Wet Handling Course Improvements


Transportation Research Center Inc. (TRC Inc.) has taken advantage of the late arrival of winter, installing new “wet handling” asphalt on portions of its Winding Road Course (WRC).

TRC Inc. worked closely with its engineering and construction firms to develop a pavement mix design that would meet its friction* target. The mixture also needed to provide a durable testing surface which will hold up in Ohio’s climate for a long period of time.
