    • Abstract:
      An OGFC test section was constructed on I-55 in Copiah County, MS during the

      spring/summer of 2007. As part of the study, literature was reviewed and a falling head

      permeability device was identified that has been used in laboratory and field studies of

      OGFC/PFC permeability. The falling head device was fabricated along with a vehicle mounted

      reaction frame. Drawings for the apparatus are included in the report. In situ permeability tests

      were conducted in wheel paths and between the wheel paths of the driving and passing lanes of

      the highway in one tenth mile increments. The measurements were initiated approximately six

      months after construction and then every six months for two and one-half years.

      A goal of the research was met in that it has been shown OGFC can be successfully

      designed using local Mississippi aggregates and polymer modified asphalt. In service, the

      resulting OGFC can carry significant traffic while maintaining an adequate level of in situ

      permeability. The OGFC did not exhibit loss of aggregate through surface raveling or

      significant spalling along cracks generated at the juncture of the laydown machine screed and

      screed extensions during construction.
