Updates from the States—South Dakota: The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) conducts research to improve transportation technology. Specific goals include evaluation of new materials and methods, development of design and analysis techniques, and study of underlying causes of transportation problems.
New Moving Advancements into Practice (MAP) Briefs describe promising research and technologies that can be used now to enhance concrete paving practices. The June 2015 MAP Brief, “Pavement Joint Deterioration: Recent Findings to Reduce the Potential for Damage” describes the causes of concrete pavement joint deterioration, ongoing research to study the problem, and recommendations for prevention.
