VDOT Materials Division Announces Strategic Plan for VDOT Asphalt Mix Quality Specifications
VDOT’s Materials Division recently met with VTCA, VAA and ODHCA to discuss the Department’s recently announced strategic plan to move the current asphalt mix quality specifications which are prescriptive in nature, to performance based specifications. The Department has assured the industry of their role in the development of the details of the 3-5 year implementation plan. We will continue to work closely with VDOT’s Materials Division in the development of the Department’s shift to performance based specifications in asphalt mixes and update the membership as details evolve.
