Roadway Pavement Design

The Roadway Pavement Design Office provides pavement design for interstates and state routes in the four regions of Tennessee, including Local Programs projects. The office is also responsible to ensure that the pavement design for minor road projects, including State Industrial Access (SIA) roads, are properly selected by the consultants and roadway designers. The office also performs Life Cycle Cost analysis to aid in pavement type selection. The office is an integral part of the TDOT Roadway Design Division.

The Roadway Pavement Design Office is aggressively pursuing the implementation of Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) now called Pavement ME Design in Tennessee. It also oversees numerous research projects regarding the improvement and technological innovations related to pavement design.
