This IM describes the data collection phase of Pavement Management, which provides information for performance evaluations, material utilization, and construction features of asphalt paving projects. The asphalt Paving History (Form #937) is used for data collection and reporting.
Form #937, copy attached, is to be filled out for each pavement course constructed.
Pavement histories will be required on all Interstate and Primary projects.
Each project may include several types of construction, e.g., base, intermediate, surface, shoulders, sub-base and resurfacing. Include a paving history for each type.
The report form has space allowed for a number of data entries; include all data that is readily available. Include milepost limits on the location description line. The asphalt Charting program will populate the paving history automatically. Fill in missing information as necessary.
The District Materials Engineer will be responsible for initiating the report and for maintaining at least one file at the District Materials Office. Forward one copy to the Central Construction & Materials Office for the statewide files to be maintained. Additionally, one copy of the report should be forwarded to the appropriate County Engineer.
