Pavement Engineering

The Office of Pavement Engineering is responsible for the pavement design of new, reconstruction, rehabilitation, and preservation projects for INDOT’s roadways. Our responsibilities include the pavement design analysis, alternate pavement designs (HMA and concrete) and life-cycle pavement cost analysis for INDOT roadway projects. The Office of Pavement Design also reviews and approves pavement design analyses for federal-aid LPA projects on state routes or the National Highway System (NHS).

Pavement Design Prequalification

Consultants must be prequalified to complete a Pavement design.

Pavement ME Design Files for Version 2.6

Pavement analysis and design will be performed using AASHTOWare Pavement ME software.

Life-Cycle Pavement Cost Analysis (LCPCA)

An LCPCA is an economic analysis technique that considers initial and future agency, user, and other relevant costs over the life of the alternative, discounted to provide comparative costs.
