Florida Concrete Test Road on State Road 200/U.S. 301

Overview

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin phase two construction of the Florida Concrete Test Road (click to view report) on State Road 200/U.S. 301 in Clay County in late June. The Florida Concrete Test Road will include 2.5 miles of experimental concrete pavement open to real world traffic on the northbound segment of State Road 200/U.S. 301 in Clay County from mile marker 0.116 to 3.510. It will allow for comprehensive in-service performance assessment of new concrete pavement technologies and innovative concepts while giving a full consideration to the interaction between factors such as traffic loading, design features, materials properties, construction practices, and environmental conditions.

The test road will be constructed parallel to an existing roadway to allow traffic to be diverted from the test road periodically for extensive performance monitoring without impacting the traveling public. Earthwork and installation of infrastructure such as roadside data collection cabinets and central data building were constructed and installed as part of the first phase of the project. Phase two, will include paving of the asphalt base and concrete test sections and reconstruction work on State Road 200 at County Road 218. Once the concrete test road project is complete, the State Materials Office will monitor the performance of the road through periodic surveys and through pavement instrumentation measurements. The existing northbound asphalt pavement will remain in place and will be used to carry all northbound traffic during evaluations of the test sections. A weigh-in-motion (WIM) installation will be located at the beginning of the test sections to document vehicle types and weights that travel the test road.

Superior Construction Inc. was selected to complete the project in 830 calendar days, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting.
