3 Macrotexture Measurement 3 Laser Texture Scanner (LTS) Spot block measurement with need for traffic closure Inertial Profiler (IP) Continuous linear measurement without need for traffic closure Mean Profile Depth (MPD) Unit: mm or in

4 MPD (example): Continuous measurement w/ IP 4 HMA Bridge

8 Bicyclist Survey Acceptability (0 = Unacceptable; 1 = Acceptable): average rate of acceptability or percentage of riders rating pavements as “Acceptable”. Ride Quality: 1 to 5, with 1 = Poor and 5 = Excellent. Other background information with potential correlations. 8 GroupSection #Rider # Mon SLO-1311

13 Remarks From preliminary results, 80% riders rate pavements with 2.0 mm MPD as acceptable; 50% for 2.5 mm. Sand seal reduces the macrotexture (MPD) of the chip seal on SLO-1. The final reduction will be measured after completing construction and opening to traffic for a while. Beside MPD (macrotexture), IRI (roughness/unevenness) may also influence the bicyclist ride quality. Unmaintained pavement develops greater IRI due to cracking, rutting. Need to consider the balances & tradeoffs: Ride quality (smoothness) and ride safety (skidding resistance) Vehicle users and bicycle users (different needs) Performance and cost 13
