Implementing AASHTOWare Pavement ME (also known as the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide, or MEPDG) as a design procedure is a challenge. The MEPDG can be used for new construction as well as for pavement rehabilitation, and provides design solutions  related to knowledge resources and data. TRB will host a webinar on Monday, April, 26, 2021 from 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern to share the learned knowledge of agencies with significant experience in initiating and implementing the software. The presenters will highlight the critical elements for MEPDG process as well as identifying which ones are less critical and sensitive to the design procedure.

This webinar was organized by TRB’s Standing Technical Committees on Design and Rehabilitation of Concrete Pavements and on Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements.
