CC8 Painting Plan

Painting of the CC8 Test area was completed by the contractor using a water based paint material in accordance with the As-Built Plan and typical line striping equipment to complete the task. The task was completed in February 2016.

 

Test slab identification and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) locations were not marked for FAA specification, but rather to aid in facilitating testing and discussion within the facility.  The markings provided the pavement engineers and researchers known locations for data collection and pavement monitoring during traffic testing. NDT test locations were denoted with a 12” blue circle as seen below.
