Financial Impacts of Overweight Trucks
A technical panel was established to develop a Research Project Statement defining the problem description, research objectives and research tasks. After considering results of prior research and the nature of the topic, the panel identified significant technical and legal difficulties, and concluded that the likelihood of successful research was low. The panel recommended that no new project be undertaken, but instead, that achievable objectives be incorporated into SD1999-15, Impacts of Off-Road Tires on Granular and Flexible Pavements. The Departments Research Review Board concurred. Costs incurred were those associated with evaluation of the research topic.
